2019 Event Dates

March 20, 2019

LEAN Office  Presentation link   Handout Link


A LEAN Office is always a lofty goal. Often the idea is very misunderstood. Teams try to cram the wrong LEAN principles into the wrong processes. The key is always to focus on the end game and the bigger picture. Joe Tanner will be presenting to the IMIN Network on this very topic.  

Some of the areas that Joe will focus on are:

· General LEAN Overview (to establish a baseline)

· What is office clutter and how do you address it?

· The eight common wastes in an office environment

· Mapping the process

· Creating flow in the office

Key take-aways:

· Understand the importance of management "buy-in" 

· Ensure you are using the right data to drive the focus

· Employ the right tools to maximize the effort of the team. 

With a little direction, IMIN attendees will understand the available tools and practices to take their office processes to a more productive level. The concept is not to introduce some new fad to the office, but to introduce a better way to achieve the business goals!
