One of the major opportunities that emerged from the workshop process was VA’s limited manufacturing capability which meant the business was increasingly outsourcing production.
“The biggest challenge was delivering what clients are demanding,” Lefteris explained. “For example we were limited to hand-carving sets and props, which meant a longer production time frame, more potential for mistakes, and imprecise accuracy.
“Our manufacturing was in its infancy. We were breaking large scale projects down into smaller parts by using 3-axis CNC machines and jig sawing it together.
“We knew we could achieve the level of production we were receiving from outsourcing, but we had to invest in the right technology.”
