The big why
Lantmännen Unibake had been approached by one of its store customers and tasked with developing a whole new concept i.e. a range of bread and pastries as part of a new in-store concept that was to be launched in spring 2016.
The project’s main purpose revolved around creating a new business model that added value for the involved parties by 1) developing a new in-store concept including defining a range of products and new packaging and 2) building closer relations with the customer.
One of the main purposes of Lantmännen Unibake’s interest in using the Half Double methodology was to reduce the standard lead time by more than 50%.
The customer’s requirements quickly highlighted some profound challenges. In order to meet these criteria, Lantmännen Unibake would not only have to work faster and more efficiently, but also start analyzing and changing some of its production setup, as well as its logistical distribution network, hence behavioral changes were needed to accomplish the task at hand.
The team pulse check is a questionnaire that we send out once a month to the project team and key stakeholders to measure and document the effect of the methodology. Furthermore, to make the necessary adjustments to ensure energising working conditions, collaboration and that people feel that they develop personally while contributing to the project. The infographic below displays some of the results from the previous month. At Lantmännen Unibake, the score ranges from 1 (to a low degree) to 5 (to a high degree).
