Through your participation, you’ll experience ways to improve on-time delivery, product quality, and operational flexibility through the development of a lean operating and management system. This will result in an operating system that provides more value to your customers and organization.
“This is a real-time, real-feedback experience… [that lets you] live your own learning.”
