“I went to the workshop with a clear idea, I needed to improve the customer experience of our service, so the workshop helped me to map the customer journey and have a better understanding of the different wastes within our value chain. Eventually we created an action plan to work on delays and extra processing that were frustrating our customers in terms of bad deliveries.
