To enable New Zealand manufacturers to generate momentum with their productivity improvements.

Our Why

Many New Zealand organisations across different industries are suffering from poor productivity in their operations.

A new approach with a fresh set of eyes can untangle the complexities that often have a negative impact on operational performance.

How we Help

Developing and maintaining a culture of high performance is more of an art than a science. It requires a broad range of skills, but more importantly, it requires a deep understanding of people and organisation.

We evaluate the entire value chain of your operation and use our expertise to help your teams make a shift change in how they do things.


The process of providing a service or product to the customer.

Productivity Improvement

The act of reducing inputs and increasing outputs.

Our expertise.

Our expertise is in lifting operational productivity to a level beyond that of your competition. To do this, we focus on strategy, process and people.


LMAC has developed and refined a Strategy Build Model specifically for the New Zealand business environment that engages all levels of an organisation. It is unique, tried and tested, and has delivered amazing results across different industries from Healthcare, Veterinary and Laboratory, to FMCG and Manufacturing.

We use our significant first-hand experience of leadership to develop training and mentoring programs that align directly with your organisation’s problems and goals. Unlike many leadership programs, our mentors have years of experience tackling persistent problems and helping teams achieve business goals. Our programs are results-based, and we’ll help you measure the outcome of your investment.

People Development

process design

Any business operation from service provision to manufacturing products is a series of processes. Whether automated or manual these processes need to be balanced and work in harmony to ensure inputs are minimised and outputs maximised. Process architecture is the foundation of operational productivity.

LMAC are leading Industry 4.0 initiatives across New Zealand by partnering with highly regarded institutions such as Callaghan Innovation and EMA (Employers and Manufacturers Association). Together, we’re focusing attention on technologies that are capable of delivering significant benefits to New Zealand’s SME landscape in an affordable and practical way.

Industry 4.0


Make New Zealand Great

There’s a growing recognition amongst economists and industry leaders that the off-shore manufacturing model has peaked and is in decline…



“The engagement model that LMAC use has worked incredibly well for us. They understand that every organisation has its own challenges and have worked closely with us to develop our own bespoke solutions and practices.”


Industry 4.0 – Show me the Money

There’s an image that industry 4.0 technologies cost a lot of money. SME manufacturers typically like short term ROI. So, we have a challenge.

“Through this interactive strategy build process, we have been able to align nationally. This has been one of the most successful approaches to enable the national roll-out, standardisation and regional accountability.”
