LEAN Services in Management
160.00 EURPrice without VAT
The LEAN methodology is well-known and used widely around the world for improving the efficiency of company processes. With good results, it is customarily used in manufacturing companies, but rarely or never in the services’ sphere or office environment. The office too can be considered a “manufacturer” in reality, as information is manufactured there; and because added value cannot, specifically, be visually identified, inefficiency is encountered here more often than in manufacturing companies.
In this intensive and very practical course, participants gain basic knowledge about the LEAN methodology, which will assist in evaluating and increasing efficiency in non-manufacturing processes.
During the course, participants will have an opportunity to evaluate a process that they have chosen themselves, prepare an action plan for its introduction, as well as receive feedback and recommendations from an experienced presenter and other colleagues.
