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 As supply chains span the globe and become increasingly complex, this traditional view is becoming limited and outdated.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
Current and future company leaders, supply-side managers, buyers, logistical professionals, and professionals leading cross-functional teams
