You might have heard of Lean – Toyota & Boeing are among the best exponents of Lean thinking, but it’s used by almost all of the top 1000 blue chip companies to drive effectiveness. Simplistically, Lean involves studying all of the activities carried out during delivery of a product or service, improving those that add value and eliminating those that don’t. By identifying discontinuities and poorly coordinated or unproductive activities throughout the delivery team and supply chain Lean can eliminate waste and improve value.

Here two experienced Lean Practitioners; Stephen Pearson and David Butcher, will provide you with an insight as to how Lean can help your own business and will give you some tools and ideas that can be used immediately to make a difference in your own organisation.
