What do we do?
We start the workshop with a process simulation covering the basics of Lean Thinking. This session provides workshop participants with an opportunity to explore and experiment with a selection of Lean concepts in the safety of the conference room. The workshop is designed to provide an opportunity to reflect on how the Lean Thinking principles will apply in the local environment.
To further identify operational opportunities, bottleneck operations and lead time issues, workshop participants then use Value Stream Mapping to develop a high level map for a key group of products or services.
Towards the end of the program we include a session designed to identify any potential change management issues, using the work of John Kotter as a framework. We also review the organisation’s best practice maturity to identify the most significant opportunities within the business.
The remainder of the program explores the practical application of a selection of lean concepts selected for your processes.
