Lean Maturity Assessment


Implementation of a successful Lean Maturity Assessment lies in understanding the sophistication of your business or facility at the point of time against key indicators of your current and future needs.

Allowing you to prioritise your efforts against gaps in your strategy ensuring operational plans are maintained through your strengths.

Later, once projects have been completed and strategic goals met, Efficiency Works and your organisation will undertake the assessment again and measure any sustained change.

1. Evaluate your operations today

Efficiency Works will facilitate a session with up-to 10 key staff members on where EW will evaluate the company’s performance in 11 Key areas against 60 categories. Each category will be discussed, with a result derived and a grading used for each answer. This tool should be used as a systematic process for your team to improve, as it is not a survey to be provided to all employees.

Levels determined for each question are:

  • A+ = Best in class – World-class benchmark
  • A = Excellent – Sustainable with great results
  • B = Good results – Heading in the right direction
  • C = On the journey – Some process gaps but striving for improvement
  • D = More gaps than achievements – Definite area for improvement
  • F = No achievements in this area – No process documented or followed


2. Understand how you rank against the benchmark

Once a letter grade for every question has been selected, a dashboard and report card will be produced. With this information, you will easily be able to see your improvement maturity strengths and weaknesses.

3. Develop improvement plans for the future

In many ways the scoring is the easy part. To truly get the most benefit from the tool you must take the next step. This process will document where you are today, but you will need to develop plans for where you want to be in the future. The process that we utilise encourages you to document and support your assessment for both your successes and the areas you need to improve.

We allow one day for the assessment. In any time remaining in the day, we will facilitate a planning session to begin to map out a high-level implementation plan.

The workshop is conducted over 1 day and comprises of interactive discussion on the elements of the customer’s needs.

The achievements of attending the Lean Maturity Assessment program will deliver the outcomes for the organisation and the participants.
