Waist Not: Healthy habits for a leaner you
It’s no secret that lean diets lead to smaller waists. Similarly, a lean organization results from reducing wastes. From its roots in manufacturing, Lean identifies eight common locations of waste in an organization. In this talk, Dawn Stevens shows how these same wastes manifest themselves within services groups, such as technical publications, and presents an exercise program of healthy habits to trim your waste and create a leaner organization.
What can attendees expect to learn?
Attendees will learn the eight wastes of LEAN and how they might manifest themselves in a services organization. You will also learn the steps you can take to address the cause of these wastes before they occur.
