Introduction to Lean Thinking
One Day Workshop - Part of the Lean Leader Series

Supervisor Standard Work“Why not make the work easier and more interesting so that people do not have to sweat?  The Toyota style is not to create results by working hard. It is a system that says there is no limit to people’s creativity.  People don’t go to Toyota to ‘work’ they go there to ‘think'”
Taiichi Ohno, co-creator of the Toyota Production System

Broad and concise, this workshop will give attendees insight into how Lean Thinking works in any process or system.  Participants will understand how this powerful continuous improvement philosophy guides people in reducing non-value added steps within processes, whether they be operational or transactional in nature.  The definitions and uses of many of the Lean “tools” will also be discussed. Participants receive an excellent course book to keep.

Learning Objectives include:

  • What is Lean: the history of Lean and the Toyota Production System
  • The Foundations: Standardization, 5S, TPM, the seven wastes, Visual Management
  • Quality Pillar: Autonomation, Andon, Poka Yoke, Jidoka
  • Productivity Pillar: Takt, Pull, Flow, Quick Change Over, Kanban
  • Understand Lean as a culture, not a set of tools
