Would you like to create a culture of problem solving and continuous improvement so that finding ways to make things better, easier, less frustrating and more effective becomes part of everyone’s job? This is what lean thinking and lean business tools are all about.
Lean can deliver benefits to businesses of all sizes and sectors. This includes improvements in cash flow, sales, productivity, waste reduction, lead times, employee engagement, quality and customer service. Unfortunately, the jargon and the sheer variety of tools and approaches available can be a major barrier to adoption of lean by many businesses. Where do you even start? Well, you have to start somewhere. Start here.
Leading Healthcare Providers Skillnet is hosting a FREE lunchtime workshop to help businesses find out more about lean. We will introduce the concept of lean business thinking, explain the lean principles, and discuss how they apply to your business. Our goals are to
- explain lean in simple terms; its origins and its focus on delivering value to the customer
- discuss the relevance of lean for different business sizes and sectors
- give examples of lean in healthcare, manufacturing, services, retail and distribution
- identify state supports for implementation of lean, including a programme available through Leading Healthcare Providers Skillnet in association with ManagementWorks
