In this (3) hour workshop, participants will learn the importance of planning a lean initiative for long-term success, as well as how to develop a successful lean plan. The following topics are covered:
  • The origins of Lean Production
  • The benefits of Lean Production
  • The tools of Lean Production
  • Factors for success
  • Defining success for the long-term
  • Planning the lean initiative
  • Stategic planning vs. tactical planning
  • Implementing and controlling the plan

Having a comprehensive lean plan is essential for the success of your lean efforts. The lean plan is your 'roadmap', and will tell you how you should proceed, and how you will define success. A good lean plan will allow you not only to move ahead at a productive pace, but will keep you on track. Without a plan, you may be wasting valuable resources required to make your lean implementation achieve its' potential.
