Event description


Lean is a management philosophy based on the Toyota Production System (TPS), where the objective is to identify and eliminate everything that does not add value (waste) in the eyes of the customer. Through continuous improvement techniques, Lean improves both the operational efficiency (produce just what is needed, when it is needed) and financial performance (no additional labor, costs, inventory, or time) of a business.

This expert-led class is designed for individuals who need an introduction to the concepts of Lean and an overview of the 8-Step Structured Problem Solving methodology that is used in process improvement efforts within organizations.
