Clarity Helps Landscape Company Trim Business Processes

Challenge
ValleyCrest Companies, the largest integrated landscape services provider in the country, initiated a substantial project to improve productivity by applying the principles of lean production. The project goal was to eliminate waste in the company’s business processes which, in turn, would improve productivity and customer service.

The training course introduced productivity improvement and the principles of lean production, focusing on eliminating waste in business processes. The consultant created a leader’s guide, participant workbooks, and visual presentation materials for use in the field offices.

Clarity enabled the client to:
• Streamline its business processes.
