Produktionslyftet offers companies Development and Focus Programmes to strengthen the organisation’s capability and willpower for renewal and improvement.

Produktionslyftet was developed based upon the manufacturing industry’s needs and opportunities, however many other companies that can also apply similar principles have participated and new ones are welcome. We apply principles based upon Lean, but the point of departure is the company’s own strengths and assessments. The programme is operated according to our standardised ”Tilted Scale” methodology, which was gradually developed based upon experiences attained since 2008.

RISE IVF  is responsible nationally for Produktionslyftet and MITC is the regional hub for East Middle Sweden.

Start programme

In the Produktionsyftet Start Programme, we work with Lean as a basis for increasing the capability to deliberately and sustainably drive improvement, renewal and automation. The Start Programme is carried out at your company, or remotely with 6-8 training sessions.

Programme content

The start programme contains four elements:

  1. Why is this important? Introduction to change work and automation, work involving your company needs and what your desired future situation will look like from the perspectives of your customers, employees, owners and surrounding society.
  2. Where are we at now? Flowcharting where we look at a selected flow and jointly render its current situation visible. We identify challenges and potential improvements, both ion general and in connection with automation.
  3. What do we need to learn more about? Based upon the questions posed and needs that are rendered visible, we undertake a tangible test of the new manner of working – with an automation perspective if it is relevant for the enterprise.
  4. How do we go forward? With this last factor, we summarise what we have learned and focus in more depth on work with change. We want you yourself to describe your next step in your development.


Development programme

The well-tried Produktionslyftet development programme of 18 months strengthens the company’s innate capability to renew itself and improve its competitiveness – all with a point of departure in the company’s own strengths and assessments. The programme is aimed at independent companies, individual factories or closely connected entities within a corporate group.

Produktionslyftet 18-month development programme is designed to develop independent companies, individual factories or closely connected entities.

Coaching and workshops will be conducted at the company every other week, the last half-year was the fourth week. When needed, experts with various competences participate from Produktionslyftet. Two persons at the company will also follow university college training in Lean, divided up into five meetings of two days with intervening homework (billed separately).

Future Lean training can be found here → [Swedish]

Smaller companies, up to approx. 30 employees, can go through a less comprehensive programme, where the schedule builds on half-days, alternatively full days, as well as being based in part remotely.

When a number of companies or entities that are a part of a group structure are taking part, there will also be needs-adapted co-ordination work. Please contact us to hear more about it.


Continuation programme

For companies that have already taken part in the development programme, a next step is offered. The aim is then focused on a specific area that the company needs to improve, for example climate and sustainability, leadership, product development, customer development, sales, a new factory or a new business area.

The selected focus area must be of strategic significance to the company and have engagement at management level. It is also a prerequisite that the area be able to be matched with an appropriate expert who can work in conjunction with one of Produktionslyftet experienced coaches.

The programme will be carried out over 10 months with seminars and coaching at the company every other week during the first half of the year and every fourth week thereafter. In total 20 meeting days should be budgeted.

In the continuation programme, we work at a higher tempo and improvement pace and hence expect a stronger self-motivation from the beginning of the work on the part of the company in comparison with the first round. In order for this to be possible, it is required of those organisations that are involved in the work that they possess:

  • A systematic approach and motivation in their on-going improvement work
  • Managers and key personnel who conduct development and learning as a significant part of their work
  • A good picture of their ambitions and the challenges they will be facing with the work
  • Their own resources from the start to devote to the development work
