MDW has provided us with a structured, cost-effective and flexible way to implement a range of best business practices at front line level. It has succeeded where other continuous improvement approaches have failed by being simpler, more engaging and less disruptive to implement and because it quickly transfers long-term improvement skills to our teams.
The coaching and training provided by CDI London is flexible, focused and practical. This enables us to implement improvements much faster than we previously thought possible and stay ahead of our competitors.
Most importantly MDWT has enabled us to transform our business results and to create a genuinely innovative culture. We are confident that our performance will continue on a steep upward climb for the foreseeable future.
Continuous Improvement Manager, UK Power Networks
The MDW programme was a fantastic enabler in the cultural transformation of the Derbyshire site. The level of business awareness of our employees, together with genuine visual performance measurement and goal alignment resulted in our Supply Chain being regarded as a competitive differentiator in the market place. The benefits this programme brought to our operation and our employees, with the support of CDI London enabled Diversey to be externally recognised as one of the leading manufacturers in the UK.
Director, Diversey UK
Implementing Mission Directed Work Teams at our main facility in the U.S. was instrumental in developing a visual workplace and initiated goal alignment between business objectives and factory performance. Terry Johnson is a passionate ‘hands on’ coach who works well with all levels of an organisation. His on-site consultations are informative, valuable, and fun

I have been proud to be part of an initiative that has had a profound impact on our business both in terms of business results & the development of our people. We have always been passionate about our products but MDW has focused our efforts in a way that has given us a greater degree of clarity as to what is actually important.
