Running a company, we have to face competition, market volatility and meet customer expectations. In addition, we are expected to keep internal rules and strategies up to date to keep costs under control and to give the company a competitive advantage.
After all, every company - regardless of the industry or location, has one specific goal: to make money!
The implementation of this goal requires work on the effectiveness of the company's operations, verification of compliance with established expectations - both within the company and by our contractors.
IIt is also essential to build your advantage on the market by implementing conscious purchasing or practicing actions ensuring sustainable development of the company.
Key question - how to do it?
There are a number of methods and tools that allow you to increase your production capacity through more efficient use of existing machinery or human resources. WE are talking about an approach based on the principles of Lean Manufacturing, Theory of Constraints, the Deming Cycle and the like.
In the line with the saying that "an elephant must be eaten piece by piece", WTTA proposes a streamlining model, consisting of one-day workshops, during which we implement only one tool in a selected area of the company. Why only one tool at a time? We stick to the principle that effective implementation of changes requires focusing on small tasks and consistency in their implementation until satisfactory results are achieved. This is how we support the building of lasting habits.
We measure the established indicators before and after the changes, which will help us to illustrate the benefits obtained. After successfully propagating a given tool throughout the company, we implement new tools in a similar way.
We offer a short visit to your place, during which we will assess the potential for increased efficiency in your company. Such consultation takes about 3 hours and is free of charge.

To ensure the repeatability of certain activities, in other words processes, we set certain work standards - whether in the form of strict guidelines contained in procedures, or in the form of codes of conduct, policies, etc.
Widely used but underestimated method is audit . Unfortunately, the audits are not deservedly covered by a bad reputation. During our audits, we show that an audit does not have to be a negative experience for the company.
WTTA proposes an audit approach focused on identifying weak points of the process, work pattern, workflow which is potential for development, rather than human errors. Both internal audits - those that the organization carries out in its own structures, as well, as external audits - carried out at contractors, are designed to verify compliance with the required way of working, confirming its legitimacy and adequacy in a particular situation.
At WTTA, we achieve these objectives by adjusting the scope of the audit to a specific situation and by creating an atmosphere of cooperation during the audit and during post-audit activities (if they occur), not by the feeling of being controlled.
Another method commonly used for process control is factory production control, which is a kind of system consisting of the frequency, scope of control and methodology for sampling and testing.
Are your company and/or your supply chain in compliance with the established requirements?
Is the way you work in your company verified for changes of the environment?
Sometimes, when deciding whether to choose a product or service provider, we are guided by intuition, price, recommendation, and sometimes interesting marketing material. Contrary to appearances, this is a common practice because we are focused on achieving the effect that we care about the most at the moment. As a result, we often neglect the other aspects of purchasing, guided by 5% savings, additional functionalities (not always necessary), other customers of a given company, ignoring the maintenance of quality, timeliness, production capacity, financial stability, costs of change. This is a natural approach and nature cannot be deceived. However, we can establish a way of working that will force the expected actions.
The WTTA proposes a Total Cost of Ownership approach in this respect. We are committed to ensuring that all risks that are important to us are taken into account.
Does your company have an informed, risk based purchasing mechanism?
Did the decision-maker happen to focus heavily on a single issue when choosing a supplier or the product itself?
Accept the challenge and show us your purchasing process, and we will show you the risks it entails free of charge.
Has the client ever asked: how are health and safety regulations and/or human rights in your company observed? Has an accident at work damaged the timeliness of delivery?
Or maybe you are observing increased absence of employees due to sick leave during holidays or seasonal work?
Sustainable development of the company responds to such issues. You can look after costs and productivity by using solutions that ensure employee involvement and identification with the company.
Sustainable development is about fighting for costs and efficiency while looking at employees' needs. Sustainable development means communicating company plans to the team, ensuring employees safety in the workplace and maintaining a balance between company plans and employees' private lives.
WTTA proposes an approach to sustainable development issues by incorporating them into the production needs and the company's main goal: to make money. We are based on the involvement of the company's employees in identifying risks and eliminating them. We engage employees to create solutions and development plans, creating a sense of unity with the company, and at the same time a sense of co-responsibility for its operation.
One should not forget about the ease of access to information via the Internet and social media, which means that it is no longer enough to comply with legal requirements to be able to meet the requirements of a modern company, because the opinion about the company is created by itself. Contact us and we will prepare a sustainability plan tailored to your company.
