Maximize Efficiency – Learn to Eight wastes of Lean – March 10

Maximize Customer Value While Minimizing Waste, with a Professional Certificate in Lean Enterprise.

Is your organization bogged down by the waste of “waiting” – for information, instructions, parts, or equipment? Waiting is one of the most overlooked and easiest-to-remedy wastes, as identified by Lean philosophy.

Lean enterprise is a strategy for streamlining the total business process, whether you work in service or manufacturing. And the simplest way to describe waste is: something that adds no value. By learning the universally applicable Eight Wastes of Lean, you can transform the time, space, tools, effort, and expense of getting the job done.
