Lean Enterprise: Boosting your Bottom Line
When business owners and managers are asked how to increase their bottom line, many reply, “by cutting cost.” However, there is more than one category of cost that encumbers most companies. “Lean” practices can eliminate other costs that impact profit, such as extraneous process, production, inventory and duplication, and non-value creation waste.
For product and service sectors alike, attendees will learn how to better distinguish between “value creation” and “waste” from the customer’s perspective. They’ll come away with the knowledge to apply a simple and proven five-step Lean System that improves workplace organization, process flow, time cycles, team productivity, customer loyalty and profit.
