Building a Lean Operating & Management System (2 Day Class)

This is not your typical classroom-based workshop. It is a hands-on, mind-engaging, simulation-based workshop that will help you achieve a deeper understanding of lean principles and tools by developing your problem solving skills to meet critical business challenges at your workplace.

You will experience ways to improve on-time delivery, product quality, and operational flexibility through the development of a lean operating and management system, increasing your understanding of each lean principle, one principle at a time. This will enable you to design an operating system that will provide more value to both your customers and organization.

Learning Objectives:
