Webinar: Wastes NOT Found on the Factory Floor

Lean on the plant floor has made great inroads in the last twenty-five years. But what many manufacturers don't yet realize is that the eight wastes are harder to see and much harder to measure, primarily because they are spread out across many value streams. This session will provide insight into how to improve efficiency in the office by eliminating waste, gain capacity from existing operations, and enhance your ability to compete.

Hands-on knowledge transfer will include traditional lean definitions and tools and how to apply them in an office setting. One of the best ways to teach lean in an office setting, as well as to those who are not familiar with manufacturing (banks, insurance offices, schools, etc.), is to show them how it applies in everyday life. These examples and tools are easy to understand and the ideas translate in real life. Highlights include Jeff Bezo's approach to productive meetings (hint: no one gets to make a presentation), finding wastes in your personal life (streamlining tricks to get you out of the door faster), and an impactful 5S exercise that opens eyes to the value of organization (you get to herd the cats!).

Join our Lean and Six Sigma expert LauraLee Rose for this entertaining and helpful online presentation followed by a live question and answer with the experts.Click on the image below for a preview of the presentation and to hear from LauraLee about WHY lean in the office is so important.
