Managed Solutions started out as a IT Services company in the late 1990s. Much like today, the late 90s to early 2000s were time of great change with new technologies frequently upsetting the old way of doing business. “Growing up” around this environment has shaped our business philosophy to be practical, adaptive and creative.
Today, we are tasked with helping many forward thinking individuals and companies to embrace transforming their businesses using emerging and established technologies together. Sound familiar? You may be one of our big thinkers. The needs for these services has grown from a trickle to a deluge, as companies scramble to find ways to ensure their long term success in an uncertain time.
We have long emphasized an approach that enables our customers to be competitive and thrive. To that end, we have embraced change following agile (lean) principles. In Lean Manufacturing, the term Gemba means “the place where value is created”. Gemba walks are a way for stake holders to respectfully engage their teams at this place (shop/plant floor) to understand and help with the improvement process. In our bi-weekly Five-Minute Gemba newsletter, we will provide fuel for you to accelerate your Industry 4.0 journey, helping you stay focused on creating value in your business.
Your feedback will be essential to make this a success! We cannot provide value without observing and understanding your situation. What has worked? What hasn’t worked? Where are you stuck? That is the second step after you sign up.
This is only the start.
