Catherine’s presentation will focus on the importance of applying Lean principles upstream and downstream of the production processes.
Believe it or not, that’s where most of the opportunity for improvement can be found. In administrative processes, work flows are hidden making it difficult for associates to see progress and define what needs to be improved. Implementation of Lean in your administrative functions is about standardization, making work visible, and establishing flow. It focuses on simplifying, engaging between functions and thinking differently. It’s that simple…but not that easy! In this case-based session, Catherine will share insights from lean office implementations demonstrating how the principles of lean can be applied in all departments (HR, Marketing/Sales, R&D, IT, etc.) to make a positive impact up and down the extended value chain. Discover how carrying your lean production efforts into your administrative environment will help your organization deploy a true company-wide strategy of excellence.
