Program: Unlocking the Mysteries of Lean……… the Office

Description: Most people are aware that Lean, as a method of continual improvement, was founded in the area of manufacturing, specifically inside Toyota. The focus of this session is to dispel the mysteries of how the basics of Lean can be applied in the office. Plan now to attend to gain the valuable understanding of how the 5 simple Principles of Lean and the 8 types of Waste can rock your world, at work and at home.
