GROWTHLABS was founded on the philosophy of creating growth in our clients through our adept abilities. As in a laboratory, we aim to analyse and synthesize innovative solutions to the operational challenges that our clients face every day. GROWTHLABS is the convergence of a clear vision, expert skill, high credibility and passion for the various fields in which we specialise. Simply put, we are a team of energetic Industrial Engineers that strategically partner with companies to reveal their hidden potential. Our approach and exceptional work ethic have brought various companies to our doorstep.
In Zen, ensō (円相 , "circle") is a circle that is hand-drawn in one uninhibited brushstroke to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create. The ensō symbolizes absolute enlightenment, strength, elegance and the universe, while mu symbolizes the always existing void.
By using this image, GROWTHLABS confirms its vision of growth (circle) and the realisation that it is a continuous and endless endeavour (incomplete circle) and we also confirm our relentless focus on innovation by establishing a development environment (labs) that puts creative solutions on the table to fill the gaps (voids) in the market.
We therefore strive to embody the philosophy that is continuous improvement - an endless endeavour to improve and grow, constantly inspired by the void to keep on challenging and innovating to fill it.
Industrial Engineering techniques are applied to analyse the existing state of the operation, identify the problem areas and relevant root causes, in order to develop an innovative solution for business growth.
Our methodology has been tried and tested and guarantees success through the involvement of employees in the company.

If you want to guarantee the success of your continuous improvement system and ensure the full buy-in and engagement of all your employees, we offer the ability to customise our standard continuous improvement approach to your company’s value system, unique processes and specific needs. This is a specialised method that is conducted in close collaboration with each individual client and always includes our Maturity Assessment offering.
Perhaps you are a small to medium size company, and looking for an already packaged continuous improvement system. We can assist you with the implementation of LEAN Management principles in a structured manner with our generic product – available “off our shelf” immediately. As an added benefit, it includes our Maturity Assessment offering.
Many companies have internal resources that enables continuous improvement and other companies already implement LEAN principles or have done focused initiatives and projects.
We believe in always knowing your level of competence and to which degree the principles of operations excellence and continuous improvement have been implemented. If you are curious about your capability and would like an assessment, we offer this as stand-alone product to any company on the continuous improvement journey.
The maturity assessment is conducted by observing processes, speaking to key individuals and assessing your internal systems, control measures and people engagement. Based on set criteria, the Maturity of a company is rated on five levels, starting from Novice and ending with World Class.
We believe in establishing a growth culture through the involvement of people, and always finding ways to improve, so this is an indication of the maturity level of your LEAN Continuous Improvement approach, rather than the old method of “good vs. bad audit”.
