Improving at a world-class rate of +0.5 point per year
on the lean manufacturing benchmarking scale, the team in Buenos Aires truly transformed its operation. The Munro factory matured from a low baseline to Silver level in less than three years. Furthermore, the team committed to their journey to Silver-Gold (level 3.5), which is an intermediate step between where they are now and attaining Operational Excellence in Argentina (level 4+).
Update by author: Silver-Gold was attained exactly 3 years later, on 9/2018, with a solid score of 3.6. Fantastic job, team Argentina!
