WEB SERIES – In the second episode of our docuseries on lean in Chile, we learn how, with a clear purpose and strong commitment from leadership, SKC is transforming its processes and mindset and building a competitive advantage.


Scripted, edited and narrated by: Roberto Priolo


This organization sells and maintains equipment for a variety of industries. Following their initial experiments with lean to reduce the lead-time for importing spare parts, SKC is spreading the methodology to its workshops and other areas of the business. This story shows how clarity on the direction the company should go towards and a commitment by leadership to accompany people along the way are two of the most powerful enablers of change.

Thank you to Lean Institute Chile for facilitating this visit.
