Lean in Business centres on eliminating non-value-adding operations, equipment, and resources and, while many companies start the journey, the more successful are those who commit adequate resources to their lean undertakings and work to a structured plan . The evidential benefits of Lean are manifold, most notably: improved quality; improved visual management; increased efficiency; and an easier to manage company. It does involve a mindset for change but its adaptation can be challenging, but rewarding.
This Conference will examine how companies, through developing a Mindset for Lean, are reaping excellent results.
Expert panellists will share their experiential knowledge of the changes required in their respective organisations to attain a Return from their Lean investment.
