Who’s this course for?

If you run an organisation, manage processes or lead a process-driven team, this is for you. The course will give you the tools and techniques you need to improve productivity and efficiency throughout your organisation. Lean thinking will make a measurable difference to your business.

What’s included?

  • An introduction to lean thinking: finding and fixing non-value-adding activities
  • Understanding and identifying waste (the Seven Lean Wastes)
  • Value Stream Mapping: analysing the current state, brainstorming improvements and developing the desired future state
  • Implementing and managing change effectively.

What you’ll learn:

Carefully managing the processes within your organisation can make a huge difference to the big picture. It can enable you to increase the amount of time available to win more clients and grow the organisation. The key is identifying where time is being wasted on things that add little value to the business.

This workshop will teach you how to map your business processes so you can identify activities that are “value adding” and those that are not. As a result, you’ll be better able to eliminate wasteful practices and create more productive business processes.
