Lean in R&D
From the approval of product evolution to the development of new products and services, the work of R&D is essential for a company’s growth.
In this session we look at how to bring lean techniques to R&D and Engineering departments.
You will learn how to identify demand, build standards, and establish and manage the in-flow and out-flow of work, all while drastically reducing response time. We also discuss the principles of Lean flow and performance management and how to establish a visual management system for more effective service to internal and external customers.
- Workshop: classroom learning, interactive exercises
- Facilitated Coaching/Consulting: implementation in your environment
