How do we know Peter?

We first became aware of Peter King's work when we were working with Sara Lee to apply VSM to production within a food processing facility. Our initial approach of employing typical discrete manufacturing concepts was very hard to apply and the maps were hard for people to relate to. That is when we discovered Peter King and his first book, "Lean for the Process Industries". After a few months of learning from this publication, we created a specific version of VSM for processing industries.  That proved very successful and it has now been adopted by many of our clients in the process industry space which include food, chemicals, and pharma.

Peter is a lean trainer and consultant with decades of experience in the industry.  He recently co-authored a second book, "Value Stream Mapping in Process Industries" . We were fortunate to meet with Peter in 2016 and together, we mapped out the case studies (plant and supply network) in the book using eVSM. His leadership, enthusiasm, and lean experience on both technical and cultural aspects is apparent in any conversation with him, and we are proud to have him as a partner.
