 How can lean business practices help my business?

Lean business practices are focused on identifying and eliminating all non value-added activities in the work environment. Does it really work, and if so, how can I implement it in my organization? 

Moderators Joel Rosenthal and Rich McKenna from Schneider Downs will facilitate an open conversation around the fundamental ideals and strategies that are a part of a lean business. They will examine the core values of lean business and discuss ideas on how to apply them throughout your organization including the back office and administrative areas.

  • What are the fundamental ideals that drive lean business processes?
  • How can the ideals of lean be applied throughout the organization?
  • Does the idea of lean business really work?
  • Is it difficult to implement these ideas?
