Lean concepts are powerful tools for increasing productivity and enabling your business to reach its growth and profit potential. However, the challenge is to adapt these powerful techniques so they remain relevant to small and medium sized-enterprises.

Tim’s company TXM has worked with hundreds of SMEs in 16 countries including over 50 companies in the UK.
