"As Director of Franchise Operations for Snap-on Tools Company, I had the pleasure of working with Mr. John Fleming as a facilitator. The purpose of this letter is to recommend Mr. Fleming as a business advisor and facilitator based on the success of the event.
Our event required the collaboration of ten individuals from across the organization. Mr. Fleming provided guidance, including some insightful pre-work reading assignments which helped all participants open their minds to the interests of the others.
The definition of success for our event was a re-engineered process, which all parties could understand, and which would provide revolutionary improvement. Mr. Fleming helped each participant play their role, and helped guide the process in a professional manner. The result was a dramatic breakthrough in our thinking, and a successful event."

The little things add up

picture200

A large multi-million dollar commercial manufacturer with 800+ employees applies the principles of Lean to address payroll process problems.

The Problem:
Weekly payroll errors created angry and frustrated hourly employees.The actual cost of reissuing a “correct” paycheck was $150 per check or $7200 per week.

The Approach:
A review of weekly payroll errors indicated that, on average, 48 hourly employee paychecks were issued in the wrong amount. A team was formed to figure out where in the process mistakes were being made.
The sources of errors involved improper time clock usage, inadequate supervisor review, failure to provide advance approval of overtime,and payroll programming errors that contributed in incorrect calculations. Training was provided to all employees providing instruction in use of the time clocks and new signage at the time clocks were added for further clarification. Supervisors were also given additional instruction in how to review the on-line time-sheets to insure correct clocking was completed.

The Results:
The number of payroll errors was reduced from 48 per week to less than 7 within a 2-month timeframe. The actions taken resulted in a cost savings of $6150 per week. The annual savings? $319,000.
And yes, if you had any doubts, this was a true story.
