As lockdown restrictions ease and businesses in all industries and services return to “normal operations”, recovering from the ongoing economic impact of the pandemic is a key priority. For most, the “old way” of doing things will not be sustainable to thrive in this new environment.
Businesses need an approach to reduce expenses in a way that doesn’t negatively impact customer experience, whether you are selling products through a store front or online, a service provider or manufacturer.
This workshop provides an introduction to using Lean Methodology to innovate your business’s work processes. Although lean thinking and methodology originally began in the auto manufacturing industry, it applies in every business and every process. It’s not just a tactic or a cost reduction program, but a way of thinking and acting to maximize customer value with the least resources.
Implementing Lean can potentially reduce expenses by 20-30% in specific areas. Implementing these improvements in a systemic and sustainable way can flow directly to the bottom line – improving operating margins. The added benefit is that often these improvements also yield higher employee satisfaction in your workplace.
