Lean Promotion Office
A resource team for a lean transformation, often formed from preexisting industrial engineering, maintenance, facilities management, and quality improvement groups.
This team provides value-stream managers technical assistance with:
- Training in lean methods.
- Conducting kaizen workshops.
- Measuring progress.
In addition to the traditional functions, the staff for lean improvement teams often consists of employees freed up in initial transformation efforts who are available to assist with subsequent kaizen activities.
