  • The business problem Kinross was trying to solve with a lean transformation
  • Where the transformation began and how it spread
  • How the company developed continuous improvement mindsets and behaviors among associates and managers
  • How it captures improvement ideas
  • How you can learn the lessons that Kinross is learning
