Maximizing Office Lean Events

Many people, especially the ones who are not very familiar with Lean and Six Sigma concepts, associate Lean with manufacturing processes such as production, warehouse operations etc. These principles are universal and can be applied as effectively to office processes as they are applied to manufacturing.

In this month's Lean Coffee Chat, we are going to interact with a speaker who has helped apply Lean principles and methodology to office processes such as IT service delivery. We will talk about things to consider before, during and after the workshops. This will be interactive session for sharing experiences, tools and ideas that has worked and lessons learnt. We are hoping you will enjoy this and get value out of it.
