Course Overview

Are you looking for a lean office training course? Can lean really be applied to an office environment? The answer is most definitely YES. Our one day lean office training course is designed for personnel in sales, finance, account management, purchasing, service and other admin functions.

The course is packed full of practical examples of how to apply lean tools such as 5S, 7 Wastes and Value Stream Mapping to an office environment. We teach you 'how to see' waste, package office tasks into units of work and calculate your customers' real requirements.

Unfortunately most businesses regard lean manufacturing almost exclusively as a set of production tools and techniques. Most businesses who implement lean manufacturing fail to achieve the full benefit of this strategy because the office and administration areas are not included in any kaizen activities.

 

If you think lean is about the factory floor only, then remember that typically 60%-80% of all costs associated with a product line are non-production costs.

 

Have we got your attention yet?

Just think, if we can reduce these costs by application of lean office principles how much more competitive your products and business will become.
