Implementing Lean Principles – How Modern Technology is Changing the Game
November 4, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
The five Lean principles are well known and have been adopted by many organizations since they were introduced in the ‘90s. Ultimately, Lean focuses on eliminating waste (any unnecessary activity that consumes time, resources, or space) so that every step of a process adds value. It is no surprise then that in this period of uncertainty, we are seeing a renewed interest in Lean to increase productivity and reduce costs without affecting quality.
In this webinar, we will discuss how modern technologies make Lean easier to implement and measure. We will focus on the main reasons to digitize your Lean principles including:
- How visual management can have a huge impact on people’s efficiency across all levels
- Which digital tools enable Continuous Improvement by giving users ownership of their applications
- How changing your waste management procedures can improve efficiency
- Why you should digitize your work processes to ensure consistency, repeatability, traceability, and more
Join us and discover how a modern implementation of Lean can dramatically impact quality, efficiency, and your bottom line.
