Implemented the 5S Workplace Organisation methodology at RoadLab Germiston Stores.

Bridge Building OpEx Solutions led by Glenda Maitin, implemented the 5S Workplace Organisation methodology at RoadLab Germiston Stores.

The Five S methodology helps a workplace remove items that are no longer needed (Sort), organize the items to optimize efficiency and flow (Straighten), clean the area in order to more easily identify problems (Shine), implement colour coding and labels to stay consistent with other areas (Standardize) and develop behaviours that keep the workplace organized over the long term (Sustain).

Our team not only achieved real-time results but also learned in the process. The BBOpEx team really lived up to their slogan “Creating Value is Our Signature”.

The aim of the workshop was to enable Roadlab Staff to provide even better Service to our Customers.

Operational Excellence

“Wynn’s appointed BBOpEx, owned and led by Glenda Maitin to undertake a Supply Chain Value Analysis on some of Wynn’s small and medium enterprise suppliers. The scope included business risk assessment, coaching and implementing business process efficiencies across the tiers of our suppliers, providing custom made solutions to each supplier.

The process enabled Wynn’s to have a transparent view of potential risks and work collectively with suppliers to close gaps. Benefits resulting from this process include supply consistency and more competitive pricing.

Glenda and her team fulfilled the project with incredible professionalism and relatable, tangible results on all levels within the organisation and the SME’s that benefitted from the project.
Should future opportunities arise, we will work with Glenda again.”

“I write this email to let you know that I’ve completed my P1 & P2 and I got good results and I’m graduating in September. I also wanted to let you know that I’m now a Junior Software developer at CLX. All thanks to you, your kindness and your guidance. Thank you for the opportunity you gave me and for assisting me to find who I wanna be. Currently at CLX we completed Velle Virtual village which was a success and Now we are working on Velle Hams again. I’m sure Andrew is also happy to see us carry forward his architect. If you get time next week let’s organize a teams meeting I want to bring something to your attention. Thank you.”

“When I started at BBOpEx, I was very reserved and unsure of myself. Glenda took me under her wing, and mentored me in my career and personal life. Glenda helped me get an interview with the company that I am at now. Today I am a Junior Supply Chain Management Consultant.”

Junior Mira

“I would like to take this opportunity to show my gratitude for what you, the ASCM and TB/HIV team have done for all of us, the ladies in the Dream Chasers group. It is funny to think when we came up with the name ‘Dream Chasers’ we were not sure what that meant to us. The true meaning came into reality as you allowed us to showcase ourselves and to find the potential within ourselves. Thank you for helping us chase our dreams and reminding us that we can be more than what society perceives about us, young African ladies.”

Entrepreneur Internship Experience – KBD® High Impact & Mentoring

“During my internship with BBOPEX, I was able to advance my business skills particularly in networking with different stakeholders such as CEOs of SMMEs and those of established large corporates, not as an employee but as a service provider who is able to bring more. I particularly found the independence to handle projects to be useful in improving my ability to work throughout all levels from Operators to CEOs, not just reporting and presenting but also interacting at an intellectual level. This is a skill that will definitely help me as I grow my business.”

Your contributions made a difference in my life, and I have grown wiser and stronger, I have become a fledging business owner. I am a professional coach, I have been Certified in Logistics Transport and Distribution. Through all my personal challenges you never saw me less as but I believe it showed you that I can work with heart and skill.
