Whether you’re a homeowner, manufacturer, service provider, independant contractor, non-profit, for-profit, government, or school, lean thinking will help you do more with less.

In this lean workshop we’ll address:

  • History of Lean

  • What is value added work, and what are the 8 wastes of lean, and how can they help you think more green?

  • Non-traditional applications of Lean

We will discuss the following concepts:

  • Value

  • 8 forms of waste

  • Single piece flow vs batching

  • 5 Lean Principles

  • 5S Workplace Organization

  • Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)

  • Visual Management

  • Error Proofing

Join Brion Hurley from Business Performance Improvement to better understand how to develop and introduce lean in your organization and your personal workflow.

Roots of Lean

In the 1950’s Taiichi Ohno, the father of lean manufacturing, created what became known as the Toyota Production System and subsequently as Lean. In the words of Mr Ohno himself, if we “are not given the opportunity to serve the company by working effectively, there can be no joy. For the company to deny that opportunity is to be against the principle of respect for humanity.”

According to lean, anything that doesn’t increase value in the eye of the customer is considered waste, and every effort should be made to eliminate that waste as it is taking time away from working on more meaningful tasks. By the early 2000s, a connection was being made between waste and the impact it had on the environment (energy, water, landfill, pollution and carbon emissions), and the idea of “lean and green” and "lean and sustainability" was born.
