Program Overview

A traditional view of lean views this concept in terms of lean tools and techniques applied almost exclusively within a manufacturing environment.  As supply chains span the globe and become increasingly complex, this traditional view is becoming limited and outdated.  This seminar takes an “end-to-end” view of lean by applying a more robust set of lean objectives across the entire supply chain.  While still appreciating the traditional thinking that surrounds lean, this seminar applies a much more expansive view of the concept, including: 

  • Lean Overview
  • Lean Supply
  • Lean Transportation
  • Lean Operations
  • Lean Distribution
  • Lean Measurement and Tools
