THROUGH OUR INTERNATIONAL PARTNER NETWORK, CUSTOMERS WORLDWIDE CAN EXPERIENCE “BESTPRACTICE LIVE” WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF PLANT VISITS AND SEMINARS. AND THE HOST PARTNERS, WHO HAVE ALL ALREADY ACHIEVED A TOP-LEVEL IN THEIR LEAN TRANSFORMATION, ALSO BENEFIT: THE CLOSE EXCHANGE WITH OTHER COMPANIES HELPS THEM KEEP MOTIVATION HIGH AND DEVELOP THEMSELVES FURTHER
The circle of companies that have initiated exemplary improvement processes within their organization and share the knowledge they have gained with other companies is growing. One of our latest network partners, the world market leader for folding glass walls Solarlux (see page 30), has also successfully established Lean Management and is now helping to make the effectiveness of this STAUFEN transformation transparent to external parties.
This kind of BestPractice partnership has an internal and external
effect: The company improves continuously, has motivated and
proud employees, becomes more appealing as an employer, and
the newfound excellence, which is actively communicated to the
outside world, also radiates to business partners.
The BestPractice principle is as simple as it is ingenious: Staufen AG enables companies undergoing a holistic transformation process to take a sneak peek behind the scenes of a similar BestPractice partner. There, they can explore certain areas of the company and experience the company philosophy first-hand. We actively promote exchanges between visitors and hosts so that both sides can learn from and with one another.
In addition, companies in our network offer seminars. With pioneers in specialist areas such as logistics, manufacturing or assembly, customers can undergo very specific training directly on site with the support of our consultants. BestPractice at Staufen is therefore not just a seal of approval but is actively put into practice through partnership that helps you move forward.
“The BestPractice Partner network provides an open channel with different companies, industries and activities, with a multitude of knowledge, forming a positive network of support and mutual growth. Being able to exchange ideas with international partners in the process exponentially multiplies access to the experiences of other professionals.”
“I remember the first time I visited a BestPractice Partner very well. I was impressed by how tangible and hands-on the abstract topic of Shop Floor Management became. Today, when we host BestPractice ourselves, the opportunity to present our own knowledge to external visitors is a great motivating factor for our employees every time.”
