LEAN 101

Overview

CME’s Lean 101 Workshop encompasses a full-day, interactive overview of Lean tools and methodology and can be delivered in-house or as a regularly scheduled CME course. This beginner-level course  introduces Lean tools to those who have never had any exposure to Lean. Lean 101 is also a great refresher course for those with a background in Lean to ensure the team has the same foundation. Participants will learn the basic history and evolution of Lean practices, how to leverage Lean concepts and tools (8 Wastes, 5S, Value Stream Mapping, Huddle Boards); and to tackle real, workplace situations.
