Lean Management principles have come a long way over the past 300 years. From Benjamin Franklin’s early ideas, to Henry Ford’s work in 1920’s and the Toyoda precepts in 1930’s, to Jeffery Liker’s publication of The Toyota Way in 2004, Lean processes have evolved from a simple concept to a set of widely used best practices. This two-day course will give participants the foundation to begin implementing Lean Process Improvement tools in their workplace.
