What we are about


Not just consultants

More than just consultants – we don’t steal your watch and then charge you when you ask the time. We know through our experience of leading businesses that this is not what you want.

We show, support and sustain your improvements and leave you with the capability to continuously improve.

We do this by adopting the core of Plan, Do, Check, Act – a structured approach carried out in a practical and common sense way.



Following a plain english, common sense approach, avoiding jargon and enhancing understanding



One size doesn’t fit all. We choose the right tools to use, but more importantly we transfer the thinking way to your people



You are the experts in your business, we have no pretensions or belief that we can replace your expertise. What we do is use our experience to help you improve what you already have.

“Lean is a way of thinking - not a list of things to do”

remember the past

Since 2009

After a combined 30 years of leading challenging businesses, we founded Lean QCD in 2009.

Both founding Directors had worked together for 10 years. Using our combined experiences and joint approach we believed we could make a difference in a range of industries.

Since 2009 we have helped businesses in a wide range of industries to transform, solve problems and adopt continuous improvement with major success.

Our Approach

A common sense approach

Understand your business

Understanding your business and the problems you face is key to being successful. Using diagnostics tools and current state process mapping we review where you are now and where you need to be.

Understand Your People

Not using the intellect of your people is the eighth waste. Our practical common sense approach along with making change fun and enlightening is key to our success. We look for win-win scenarios to make the changes sustainable.

Understand Your Problems

We are problem solvers, pure and simple. Raising problems to the surface, creating a fear-free environment and then using a systematic and structured approach to identify root cause and implementing effective counter measures.
