This one-day, hands-on, ‘learning by doing’ style of workshop will cover the Lean concepts of customer focus, information and material flow and waste elimination. In this introductory session, participants will take part in simulation exercises to gain an understanding of the foundations of Lean and learn what it means to pursue perfection. This training can be taken in-person, online or remote facilitated.

UPDATED CANCELLATION POLICY
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, CME has adjusted our cancellation policies to allow members the greatest flexibility to put health and safety first while benefiting from the world-class training CME provides. Cancellations received in writing 10 days prior to the first day of the course will be reimbursed 100 per cent of the purchase price. Cancellations received fewer than 10 business days are eligible for a 50 per cent reimbursement. Participants who are not able to attend an in-person session due to illness or self-isolation will be offered the opportunity to participate virtually where possible, or to send a delegate in their stead (for single-day sessions or where missed day occurs on day one of a multi-day course).
Where neither is an option, CME will apply a credit or allow the participant to re-enroll at a later session start date to continue their learning at no additional cost.
