Business Transformation Services


Taking your business to the next level

Let’s talk about how TIS can help transform your business, improve employee engagement, and work as a transformer to tackle your most important strategic challenges.

Lean Enterprise

Developing an organisation that continuously seeks out and eliminates waste is one of the key factors in sustaining your transformation activities. The Idea Smith designs and develops your organisation for autonomous continuous improvement in order to achieve Operational Excellence across all the five domains “Leadership’ “People” “Processes” “Technology” “Data”

Lean Leadership

How do I encourage people to take initiative to find solutions?

What barriers must be broken down in order to get improvement ideas flowing inside-out?

How do I build trust within teams ? How do I get them to work towards Organisation Goals ?

What must I do to change from being a reactive “firefighter” to becoming a proactive “systems thinker” ?

How can I get our employees to be accountable, to take ownership ?

Leaders expect higher performance and changes in behaviour from their subordinates, in order to get this desired outcome we train leaders to transform themselves and lead by example.

Lean Strategy / Hoshin Kanri

We help you decide where you want to be in the future and chart the road map of how to get there. Two of the most common questions we hear are “Where do we start” and “How will Lean fit into our organisation” ?


We help your organisation identify the most important breakthrough goals and then deploy them through iterative process of cascading through the organisation. This ensures that everyone is working on the right things that will achieve the company vision and goals. We help your ensure that the whole business portfolio is worth more than the sum of its parts

Our approach results in accelerated performance improvement, fully engaged employees, and greater customer satisfaction.

Lean Training

Client Testimonials

Topller Lifestyle Fashions Pvt. Ltd.

After seeing the success of other organisations, we wanted to use Lean methodologies to transform our company’s internal processes and culture. The Idea Smith was engaged to bring us through this demanding process. They provided a hands-on, simple and methodical approach to the transformation process. Through their coaching and engagement of our workforce in lean thinking, we were able to identify waste in our organization. They have provided support that is not just focused on implementing a tool, but on building a culture that will be so important to our sustained success. While the immediate cost savings generated from the work has been exciting, perhaps the most rewarding aspect is to see the transformation from a reactive culture to a proactive thinking culture, something that will provide us sustained performance.
