What do you mean “Lean” – Bandwagon or Benefit?

This is a presentation from a short workshop session I designed to introduce a group of analysts to some of the principles of Lean Thinking.  It’s by no means comprehensive, given that the brief was to make it participative and to last no more than 75 minutes.

What do you mean “Lean” – Bandwagon or Benefit?

So many organisations these days claim to “have done Lean”, “be Lean” or “doing Lean”, but what does that actually mean?  Come along to this interactive session to:

  • Find out where Lean came from and why it is relevant not just in the manufacturing sector
  • Understand key Lean concepts such as Value, Waste and Flow
  • Have a go at using some Lean tools and techniques (e.g. Value Stream Mapping, 7 Wastes Process Walk-through)
  • See what tools and techniques are in the Lean toolkit
  • Understand why Lean is really all about engaging people in improvement (and not about tools)
  • Be able to spot opportunities to apply Lean Thinking, back at work
