Lean is a systematic and evidence-based approach to addressing issues affecting organisational performance that has been used by many businesses and universities to produce significant process improvement. It comprises a five step process known as “DMAIC” – Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control – and is used to improve the current capabilities of an existing process.
This session provides an overview of the core principles of the Lean methodology and basic Lean tools and techniques that can be applied to an improvement initiative.
