Manufacturers have known for decades the importance of continually improving processes to improve quality and reduce costs and Lean has been a powerful management tool to achieve these goals. But Lean, which focuses on delivering value in the eyes of customer, is also an effective way of improving overall business performance when applied to processes outside of the manufacturing arena. The question is, how can you wield it most effectively in non-traditional areas?
Join Lean consultant and popular author Bill Waddell and experts from iDatix in this lively webinar to:
- Learn to recognise the common gaps in the manufacturing process and how you can fill them in
- Understand new and more effective ways that Lean tools can be applied outside of manufacturing all the way to your customer and everything in between (service, distribution, etc.)
- Explore ways that you can apply these concepts to your organisation
