Event Details



"
The Good, the Bad, and The Ugly
of Lean Implementation"

 

Guest Presenter:

 

Douglas Greene

President

Hixson Metal Finishing 

 
This entertaining and engaging presentation will focus on the realities of going lean - though it can garner amazing benefits, it's not an easy row to hoe.  

Drawing parallels between the Eastwood flick itself and Lean Manufacturing in general, Douglas will highlight the motivational challenges of going lean, assigning objective values to traditionally subjective obstacles such as employee fear and satisfaction and providing a mathematical formula to test lean readiness.

To top it off, there will be an employee testimonial video that showcases the light at the end of the tunnel.
