Explore ways of using lean techniques to improve productivity and reduce production costs.

Improving productivity in your business can lead to a reduction in production costs and a more competitive business.

Focusing on adding value through applying lean techniques leads to improved quality, cost and delivery performance along with increased capacity.

However lean implementations are often reported to falter or not deliver as expected.

Our event will offer an introduction to lean and a critique of past deployment and success.

It is aimed at a return to, and outline of lean essentials.

We'll recap on the fundamental principles and elements that hold the potential to transform an organisation.

Additionally we will revisit the key success factors supporting lean implementation and lean benefit capture.

Why should you attend?

It may be that you believe the time is right to more fully understand and deploy lean.

Alternatively, it may be that you have embarked on the Lean journey but the rate of progress has been slower than anticipated. Alternatively, it may be that you believe that implementation progress is positive but tangible benefit is not.

For all these scenarios this workshop provides the opportunity to step back from current operations, review the essential implementation elements of Lean, and assess the way forward for your organisation.

Who should attend?

Those who have responsibility for championing or driving business improvement within the workplace and/or those involved in the implementation of new processes and new ways of working.

This event is free of charge, with limited places, so book early to avoid disappointment.
