Lower Columbia College in partnership with Impact Washington and Cowlitz Economic Development Council are hosting a program on the Principles of Lean. It is is a one-day seminar that introduces Lean in a classroom discussion combined with live simulation sessions that demonstrate Lean concepts.
Lean is about operating the most efficient and effective organization possible, meeting customer and stakeholder expectations with improved quality, lower costs and quicker delivery of products and services. Lean is an approach that shows companies how to make smarter and better use of all their resources—technology, equipment, and especially the knowledge and skills of their people. While manufacturing is the arena where Lean initiatives originated, the principles can be applied to office settings, health care, and any transactional business, as well as government. This class will introduce you to the fundamentals of Lean continuous improvement strategies and prepare your for the first step of your Lean journey.
