GM – major manufacturer of force measurement solutions, Sweden

The first thing he did was to draw a map on how things were done. Then he drew a map of where we should be in less than a year for our largest product (60% of turnover). Together with our new Operations Manager he worked out a strategy for operations and started a cultural revolution to change the mindset of all employees. Ian started a range of change projects with the aim to double capacity without adding resources and without large investments. He educated our personnel so that he, after a relatively short time, could hand over execution to operations. We now see the results of this change. Inventories are being reduced and inventory turns are up. Net Working Capital is going down and our through put time is substantially reduced.”
