- Course Overview
The Lean Thinking (Lean) approach to operational excellence has migrated far from its origins in manufacturing to find broad application in virtually all forms of enterprise.
Derived from Toyota's renowned production system principles, Lean is focused on reducing waste and increasing flow, raising employee involvement and maintaining continuous improvement while creating value. It can form a powerful platform for transforming organisations and innovation efforts of all kinds. And this two-day program will show you how to apply it to the delivery of a service.
Lean for Services has been tailored to provide the essential understanding and skills to use Lean within sectors such as health care, financial services and government to reduce errors, waste and costs, accelerate time cycles, streamline processes and, ultimately, improve client experience.
