Michael Hutchman from Holmen Iggesund Paperboard explains how CfLP supported Iggesund to set up and project manage the Cumbria/ CI Forum.
What help did your organisation or individual need?
Support with setting up and project managing a county-wide business forum
How did CfLP help with this need?
During the early days, identifying possible Forum members from their extensive business contacts and leading the first session (where we agreed the structure of the Forum). Since then project managing the Forum, including planning events, coordinating communication with members, surveying member opinion, etc. They have also hosted valuable sessions at their base in Cockermouth. We now have a thriving Cumbria Lean & Continuous Improvement Forum, with >20 (paying) member companies and 4 well-attended events each year. Very high member satisfaction results.
What impact has this had on your organisation?
Much improved networking & sharing of Lean & CI knowledge right across Cumbria.
Would you recommend CfLP to other organisations and if so why?
Yes definitely, as they are a knowledgeable, professional, well-connected and committed team who are a pleasure to work with!
