Today most customers expect unique products and immediate services. In order to meet this expectation, we frequently need accelerated response times and greater efficiencies.
According to lean thinking, we don’t certainly need to work more or faster to achieve this. Eliminating unnecessary, non value add activities from our processes give us a much better result and also presents a more humanistic approach. In case we carry out our improvements by engaging the colleagues who run the actual process, we can make a positive impact on their motivation and commitment at the same time.
Lean tools use common sense, they are easy to present and easy to learn. Our successful projects demonstrate that great improvements can be achieved in process cycle times (up to 90% improvement), in inventories (above 20% reduction) or in manpower efficiencies (20% or more improvement). Our support can include specialist- and leadership level trainings, workshop facilitation and project management.
At Concordia we are experts in improving both administrative and manufacturing processes, our specialty is that we are not only confident in applying the technical tools, but we are paying expert attention to the human side, so to embed the improvement thinking into our clients’ culture.

"The first time I met Concordia and their team was in 1999. I was attending a vision building workshop which ended up serving as the springboard for a process that transformed an oversized, inert, state-owned, socialist firm into a competitive, dynamically growing and highly successful international company.
Two years later, in 2001, I was a major player participating at subsequent, now legendary workshops. One of them, titled “How to reduce our stock to 700 000 tonnes”, is now considered a legend in its own right because it was a milestone that enabled a company wide optimalisation of corporate operations within the fields of mineral oil processing and sales.
Therefore in 2008, when as top tier managers we decided on the reorganisation and modernisation of the company, and on clarifying the vision of the organisation, I had absolutely no doubts that we would be doing this with no other than Imre Lövey and Concordia. Yet, despite our previous experience, they still managed to surprise us with new concepts. Their proprietary theory of Healthy Organisation and the attached questionnaire was hugely helpful in showing us the current position of the company but no less importantly enabled most of our colleagues to understand the necessity of change.
…they never settled for just doing things. They have always wanted to get things done, and they still do like pros…."
