Fat is the part of your activity that your customer is not prepared to pay for, and so the costs fall to you. A leaner organisation has the muscle to succeed efficiently and effectively. In some businesses, as much as 90% of activity does not add value, and what does not add value simply adds costs. The Lean Approach increases productivity by optimising production and reduces fixed operating costs, easing the financial burden.
During this 30-40 minute session attendees will get an overview of the lean approach and how to engage their employees. John will cover the following in this interactive session.
- What is Lean (Mindsets &Tools)
- Business Drivers /Business Context
- Productivity Overview
- The 8 Wastes
- Connecting Concepts for Challenging Waste.
- The “Challenging” Mindset.
- Mindset Transcends different business types.
- Coaching for Lean Thinking
The talk is intended to be deliberately “provocative”, in a way that gets participants to make their own connections, and find their own opportunities. John has recently run this talk in Cambridge IoD, IoD HQ Pall Mall, Hethel Engineering Centre where it has been well-received.
