Originally developed for manufacturing, Lean is primarily about solving problems and can be applied in most types of organizations. You will explore and discuss basic Lean principles and thinking. Workshop topics will include people involvement; waste reduction; standardization; visual management; A3 problem solving; value stream mapping; and 5S workplace organization. Hands-on demonstrations will be used to emphasis concepts.
