It’s a new year: Let’s get lean

What is your New Years Resolution? If you said, “Improving Business Process and Increasing Profitability”, you came to the right place. Let’s start with a few areas where we see waste in the office.

  1. Transporting documents from one area to another
  2. Documents or Emails Waiting in an inbox for approval at various stages
  3. Passing on incomplete information. This is a Defect that requires rectification at a later date.
  4. Pick up, put down, pick up, put down, pick up…this is Over-processing
  5. Delivering an order to production that will produce the wrong thing is a Defect.
  6. Waiting for the customer to provide the correct information

Our goal is to help you get leaner in the office. If you struggle with any of these areas, then come join us at our Learn Lean: Business Process Improvement Workshop and shed those office pounds away!
