LEAN + the environment: What is LEAN and why should I consider learning more?


This workshop will give you a general overview of the tools available to a LEAN practitioner and how these tools can be used in any setting to identify issues and provide suitable solutions that can help drive productivity and reduce costs. LEAN is already very popular amongst in a production & manufacturing setting but you will learn how it can also bring benefits to a more traditional office setting.
