SIMPLER CONSULTING EXPANDS LEAN MANAGEMENT SERVICES IN INDIA TO SUPPORT HEALTHCARE AND COMMERCIAL INDUSTRIES
Simpler Partners with Quality Council of India to Offer Lean Trainings
L 41 Connaught Circus, New Delhi 110 001, India —February 22, 2012—Simpler Consulting, L.P., a leading global management consulting firm, today announced the formation of a new entity, Simpler Consulting India to expand the Company’s geographic footprint to bring Lean management services to healthcare and manufacturing organizations in India. In addition, Simpler has signed an exclusive agreement (MOU) with the Quality Council of India (QCI) to provide accredited Lean healthcare training and experience to the Health Division of QCI.
“Quality healthcare at an affordable cost is a theme being adopted by healthcare providers and policy makers,” said Dr. V.K. Singh, chairman of the Healthcare Division of the Quality Council of India. “Simpler Consulting works with healthcare organizations across Europe and the United States to apply Lean management to eliminate waste, cut costs and improve patient care. QCI believes the use of Lean management in India will transform our healthcare organizations in years to come.”
The first Lean healthcare training course took place in Bangalore on 12th December 2011 and was attended by more than 40 participants, and full nationwide rollouts of the training sessions are scheduled to launch in March 2012. Beyond healthcare, the demand for Lean management in the manufacturing and commercial sectors in India is growing as more and more U.S. and European-based companies look to India to outsource design and manufacturing work.
“As an increasing number of our clients expand their manufacturing in India, they are looking to Simpler to provide management support,” said Jon Armstrong, managing director of Simpler Europe and Asia. “The new entity will help us to both better our India and multi-national clients across their global manufacturing facilities.”
“Simpler has an established track record of working with organizations in India to successfully implement enterprise-wide Lean transformations,” said Chris Lloyd, vice president of Simpler Europe and Asia. “The creation of our new India entity, including the hire of a local resource, will provide better service and support to our growing client roster across all sectors. Our investment demonstrates our commitment and confidence in the India market.”
