Searching for Waste in All the Right Places
Most of us think of waste in business and processes with a traditional view of isolated functions and teams. In our efforts to reduce waste within team processes, we actually create more within the rest of the organization. The goal of reducing waste is not about reducing costs, nor is it solely about maximizing efficiencies and effectiveness for teams. In her presentation, Joanne will talk about how our traditional views and management of waste in business has actually led to increasing waste in our use of technology. By applying the principles and practices of Lean Thinking to Information Management, we can position ourselves as orchestrators of waste reduction throughout the entire organization.
