Empower Your People To Increase Performance
Makoto Is Different
We Start With A Fresh Approach
No Big Data Analysis
Decisions based on data alone are often wrong. Data is useful but by itself, it won't give you the full story. We do not require investment in major data analysis in order to work effectively.
Worker Buy-in First
We prioritise buy-in from the people doing the work on the shop floor. With improved worker engagement, other levels of management co-operation flow naturally.
We Bring an Open Mind
No Spray On Solutions
Every site is unique with its ways and culture so we don't reuse solutions. What works in one site or department may not be the right fit for another. Lasting commitment comes from solutions that are the best fit for the people doing the work.
Peer To Peer
We respect the knowledge and experience of the people who work in your business. They are in an ideal position to identify inefficiencies and test potential solutions. We work beside them in a process of discovery. Ideas are made big and visual to maximise engagement.
We Work In A Different Way
Learning Through Experience
We use an experiential learning style because your people learn best when dealing with practical examples. In this way, your workers agree on their own definition of good and bad work practice. Clarity is achieved and processes to achieve desired outcomes can be tested.
Training is only offered to people committed to advancing continuous improvement practice in their workplace. Our training is practical and focused on empowering those able to take action. We don't offer mass training programs that are classroom-based and theoretical.
Don't fight human nature. Harness it.
People are powerful, inventive and clever.
Given the right circumstances, they can drive lasting change.
We help develop clarity, leadership and drive.
We help engage your people to transform your business.
