Lean Basics / Lean Starter Day

How to get your lean transformation started

Probably you already heard about lean management, especially in combination with great results and achievements in the automotive industry. You are wondering if Lean can only be applied there or in different sectors like mechanical engineering, electronics, process industries or even in the service industry as well? The answer is: yes, sure! Allow yourself to be convinced and find answers to your questions: 'What is Lean all about?', 'Where are its origins?', 'How does Lean produce lasting value creation and competitive advantages?' Our experts will explain the concept of lean management, as well as its principles, tools and methods. Furthermore you will learn about how to get started with your implementation. You will learn to apply Lean as a longterm process and not a short-term initiative - across departmental boundaries and all corporate hierarchies. Based on a hands-on simulation game, in-depth lectures and practical examples from Toyota and non-automotive companies you will easily understand the concept of lean management and learn about success factors and 'dos & don’ts' of a successful lean transformation.
