Businesses are constantly under pressure to do more with fewer and less resources, while meeting deliverables, timelines and targets... and the usual solution is to work harder. Working harder, however, is not necessarily the only or best solution. Truly, doing more with less has become a battle cry for today's companies. So how do successful companies achieve productivity goals out of fewer resources?
This is where Lean comes in, a revolutionary approach to thinking and learning that supports the following conditions: How to create a Lean culture, How to eliminate waste, How to motivate to achieve higher levels of productivity and customer satisfaction, How to sustain the cycle of doing more with less.
"How to Do More with Less" will be presented by Albert Lettman, a Lean expert with over 20 years of experience in Lean principles, ISO 9000/Malcolm Baldridge Assessment, Six Sigma and Shainin. He has personally conducted over 75 Kaizen events and has overseen more than 300 events in his role as a manager/director/consultant. Lettman has proven success in developing and implementing all aspects of Lean principles in a variety of industry sectors, including manufacturing, healthcare, and government, on the worksite floor and administrative offices, as well as in the classroom.
