Continuous Improvement

Dumontis helps organizations in becoming autonomous in continual improvement and thereby engaging the whole organization. In this way, principles and processes underlying performance are rooted with all associates and results are sustainable. We provide consulting, coaching and competency building services and have ample experience in the areas of Lean, TPM, Six Sigma, Quality, Supply Chain Management, Supplier Integration and Supplier Development.


02-24-2014 | 2014 has already been underway for quite a moment; time for Dumontis to briefly look back at 2013. As was already the case in 2012, also in 2013, for a large part, Dumontis has been active outside of the Netherlands. We have worked on Lean initiatives in the German chemical, Finnish construction, French aluminum and Dutch aerospace industry. Furthermore, we have also again guest-lectured at the Rotterdam School of Management on the topic of Lean Operations and Lean in the Supply Chain.

One of the core elements of Lean thinking is that problem-solving is the central mechanism of continual improvement. But not all problems are alike. Some problems are about not (always) meeting the standard; others are about the current standard not meeting the (current or future) expectations of the stakeholders. The first is more of a management problem and requires a standard; the second problem type I consider a leadership problem and requires a vision. Solving the first type of problem leads to consistent performance; solving the second takes the organization to another level of performance.
