CPD: Leading towards lean (an overview)

Webinar description

During this concise yet intensive session, we shall be addressing the philosophy of operational excellence through a lean management perspective. We shall discover how evolution has been instrumental in developing the concept of ‘process’, yet at the same time has also generated several other issues along the way, at times compromising our value offering.

Whilst normally associated with the manufacturing sector, these principles are in fact transportable to any other business sector…and personal lifestyle!

The recent experience we have gone through has exposed several who were not ready to take on the unprecedented challenge. Had they been practicing basic lean best practices, the struggle might have been somewhat less damaging.

This eye-opener discussion takes us through the route to becoming Lean Converts.
