Event Details

Based on the Toyota Production system lean methodology focuses on reducing work while increasing value. The main motive is to boost work processes by eliminating wasteful efforts. Going Lean is about improving organizational performance - seeing problems and solving them the "right" way, and in so doing, continually increasing the thinking ability and/or intellectual capacity and skill of all employees. A fundamental premise of learning is that other people's experiences provide insight and perspective that can help us to achieve the results that we are looking for.

This event takes a group of delegates to the Gemba (place of value creation) at Toyota itself. The Toyota Lean Team will share and teach.

An opportunity not to be missed!
