THE LEAN BUSINESS PROGRAMME 2017
The Local Enterprise Office Laois, as part of our ongoing commitment to our micro-enterprises is running a 2 day ‘Lean for Business’ programme on April 26th and May 3rd 2017. Lean projects are derived from problems arising within a business. Lean thinking towards problem solving starts with a clear statement of a problem and leads through its resolution using a process of measurement, analysis, implementation and evaluation of the solution. The tools used on this programme will allow your businesses to increase profitability, lower costs and improve customer satisfaction.
Our contracted agents to deliver this programme are LBS Partners, Limerick. Established in 2002, LBS Partners have created a unique, practical and proven framework than enables them to develop solutions which produce the ultimate competitive advantage to clients.
The Lean Approach: It enhances value for the customer. This means, delivering what the customer needs, when it is required and at the best possible price. Lean offers a structured methodology that maximises value for the customer through the elimination of waste from an organisation’s activities. Lean examines the entire value stream – the sum of all activities completed by an organisation to produce a product or to deliver a service.
The elimination of waste is a key underlying principle of Lean. It requires moving away from the traditional approaches to process improvement and instead focusing on the product or service provided to the end customer. A culture of continuous improvement is key to any organisations sustained success in the elimination of waste. Instilling this culture is done by considering three aspects of the business: Purpose, Processes, People.
This 2 day training programme provides an understanding of the fundamental concepts and principles which underpin Lean Thinking. It will introduce the concept and benefits of continuous improvement which lies at the core of Lean transformation.
