LEAN FORUM

AN INTRODUCTION TO LEAN
In preparation for the KZN Lean Conference

Lean is an operational excellence strategy, a way of thinking and a toolset. Many see Lean as applying only to the manufacturing industry, but this is certainly not the case as Lean is about the removal of waste from processes and every business is process-oriented. This way of thinking and toolset will help you lower the cost of doing business by reducing waste and defects in your processes. Learn how to transform your business, empower your team and create a culture of respect. If you would like to learn a little more about Lean, please come along to this free preparatory workshop.
