About Cambrian Business Improvement

Our background

Cambrian provides business improvement services based on Lean Systems Thinking and Change Management principles. We enable companies and organisations to carry out improvements in their day-to-day operations by providing their staff with tools & techniques through training, coaching, mentoring and hands-on assistance in service and process improvement, transformation and change.

Our Senior Consultant is a Lean and Change Management Master Practitioner with 20 years of experience delivering improvements in operating performance, customer satisfaction and bottom-line results for companies and organisations in the public and private sectors. His more recent assignments over the last 10 years have included many Housing Associations across the UK, the Ministry of Defence, a major high-street mobile communications provider, the Home Office, two leading UK Universities, Local Authorities in England and State Services (Health and Government) in the Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey.

Our approach

Our training, coaching and mentoring is provided in a very practical way, tailored for the situation, to fit the specific requirements of the customer underpinned by expert facilitation.

Our Lean learning is based on Lean Systems Thinking with embedded Change Management. We always use the customer’s own processes to explain and teach Lean and can also include a Lean review of a key process as part of the assignment.

Overall, our watchword is ‘common sense’ and the tools & techniques we teach enable pertinent information to be surfaced so that a dialogue can happen to find the issues that are “preventing people from working at their best” and the solutions for solving them.

Our values

Trust, fairness, integrity, respect, open-ness and social responsibility form the basis of how we engage with everyone we meet and how we operate as professionals:

  • We only undertake work where we believe we can deliver value
  • We always work to the benefit of our clients and society as a whole
  • We are open and honest, good news or bad
  • We are fair and reasonable in all our business dealings
  • We commit a proportion of our time and income to good causes
