Mr. Nigel Chan, Director

Jemaramas Jaya Sdn Bhd

It has been a pleasant journey for Jemaramas to work alongside with Lean Management
Academy in educating, guiding and executing the above program with our employees.
Special thanks to En Muhar for your dedicated support and guidance throughout project.

I realised that Lean is 50 % about tools & 50 % about mindset. It takes tools and systems to
create results and business impact. Both are required to reach operation excellence. It takes
a Culture of Excellence (mind-set & behaviours) to achieve and sustain results.

Throughout the program, we do encounter obstacle but we brainstorm and do it as a team
to overcome the problems. I hope the company will continue to practice “Kaizen” to sustain
Lean and embrace the ideas and develop a participative, team-based approach.

As we look at the road ahead, let us remember the famous proverb: "If you want to go
quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together."

We look forward to more opportunities to work with Lean Management Academy again in

Mr Adam Law, Executive Director

Soon Her Sing Industries (M) Sdn. Bhd

First and foremost, we, thank you Lean Management Academy in coaching us for the LEAN manufacturing implementation throughout the four months period, commencing December 2018. We appreciate the efforts and approach of the experienced consultant, Encik Muhar, for his wonderful way of guiding us to implement LEAN management in our company. Whenever issues aroused, Encik Muhar unperturbed way of handle those problems gave us a boost and confidence to manage it better the very next time.

We have gained so many benefits from the LEAN manufacturing implementation. One of the biggest benefits we gained is on the transparency of data sharing among all the employees, even our foreign workers. Subsequently, this has enhanced the work effectiveness and efficiency.

LEAN manufacturing is a series of methods designed to minimize the waste of material and labor while maintaining or increasing levels of production. It is about eliminating that which does not add value and delivering the best possible product to the customer as quickly and with a few barriers as possible.  

I would like to recommend any company in Malaysia to go for LEAN management. It is rather important to engage an experienced consultant like Encik Muhar for its implementation. His persistent, flexibility, patience, knowledge, approach and touch to all the participants during the training has given a very good positive impact on the entire team for a full commitment to go for LEAN!

It was, indeed, a great pleasure to collaborate with Encik Muhar and his team which had responded timely and professionally to all our questions. His assistant, Chin Leng has also a dynamic young man who always there to assist when questions aroused. Last but not least, we look forward to working with Encik Muhar and his team again soon in the near future.

Our very special THANK YOU once again to Lean Management Academy!
