On Friday August 16, 2013 join Gary Conner, Nevada Industry Excellence (NVIE) Project Manager for the Sparks, Stead, and Northern Reno Area as he hosts a free one-hour webinar “Lean as a Growth Strategy” from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM.
Lean has been referred to as a waste reduction strategy, but we have evidence that the techniques in the Lean approach can be utilized to set your company apart from the competition. Through case studies and real life examples we will make the case for Lean as well as share the ‘roadmap’ used by these industry leaders.
Many companies have studied the Toyota Production System and General Electric models over the past thirty years. And while a significant percentage of Job Shops often bemoan Lean as failing to yield the same kind of gains in high-mix, low volume shops as they do in OEM environments, there is abundant evidence that when properly applied, Lean and Six Sigma positions companies to thrive rather than just survive within their respective industries.
