Key Concepts of Lean

March 10-11, 2020 | Boston, MA

Join us for a 2-day workshop that has been designed for individuals and teams that want to gain a better understanding of the components and underlying philosophy of lean, and how the elements and philosophy work together to create a Lean Enterprise.

Focusing on three key areas – People, Process and Purpose – this workshop explores how the alignment between those three creates a Lean Enterprise.

One simulation used to learn the concepts of lean thinking is the paper airplane simulation.

Purpose: Learn how all functions, individuals, and systems work together to deliver true value to customers creating competitive advantage and lasting business results.

Process: In order to get real sustainable results in safety, quality, cost, delivery, and morale, one must bring all the tools of lean to work together as a system.

People: The success of any lean transformation depends on the engagement of every employee in the process for continuous business improvement, and their willingness and ability to solve increasingly complex problems.
