The original concept of lean management had, at its core, the goal of eliminating inefficiencies and wasted resources. It has evolved to include increased production and reduced cost through improved work processes. While lean management as a practice has existed for over half a century, it continues to be the standard for world-class manufacturing and has application in almost any organization wanting to establish a culture of continuous improvement.
In this course, you will learn how to apply a scientific method of experimentation and study to work processes and systems. Lean is not simply about cutting resource or staff costs. The focus is on process improvement and quality, without sacrificing safety, efficacy, or a positive culture that supports security and growth for employees.
