MRC Lean Office Workshop

12/11/2013 8:30 AM - 10:30 AM

Lean Office

The goal of an organization is to be a Lean Enterprise – to apply the common sense business practices embodied by Lean Thinking to all areas of a business. There are many well documented successes in manufacturing applications. However, service organizations and administrative processes within manufacturing companies have struggled with applying these concepts.

In this workshop you’ll learn the principles of Lean Enterprise and how to apply them in an administrative environment. The workshop consists of a mix of classroom style learning and an interactive simulation. Through a combination of presentation followed by office kaizen events (focused improvement activities) the office is transformed from a slow and confusing process into a timely and effective operation. In addition, observers are assigned to create Value Stream Maps (VSM) in order to identify value-added and non-value added process steps. The VSM is then used to highlight wasteful activities that will become the basis of the improvement activity. Participants will obtain a direct, experienced based understanding of the various concepts and components of the Lean Enterprise applied to administrative functions.

Who should attend: Anyone who works in the administrative area of a manufacturing company, or anyone who works in a service organization can benefit from this workshop.
