1 day, £400

Various dates available – email for details

How to reduce waste and improve the efficiency of your business is the question that every CEO will ask. However you visualise the waste, whether it is a value stream map or through ‘go and see’ at the work force, identifying the non-value added activities or waste is a key part of the process to eventually then make the required improvements.

Delegates will go through each of the 8 wastes;

  • Waiting
  • Over production
  • Rejects/Repair
  • Motion
  • Processing too much
  • Inventory
  • Transport
  • Skills

We will demonstrate all these wastes through a practical example.

Delegates will be able to determine the cost of each waste identified, before focusing on the skills required to develop the ‘Kaizen Mind-set’.

Most importantly how to ensure kaizen activity is implemented otherwise the process of identifying the waste itself will just be WASTE….
