Leaders who focus on customer value and remove process waste will improve organisation performance.
The latest data from the UK ONS states that output per hour worked in the UK was 15.9% below the average for the rest of the G7. The challenge of continuously increasing productivity, delivering better services or products for less has never been so critical. The course will help to build internal lean and business improvement capability to improve organisation processes, products and services.
Philosophy of Lean
Creating value without waste is still the central idea of the Lean philosophy. Other essential principles include the pursuit of excellence and continuous process improvement. These principles are nested in a mindset of creating an organisation that continuously improves its processes and respects its people, with a focus on adding value to the customer.
