Event description

Description

As a business owner or manager, you’re an expert in your sector. You know your products, your competitors, and what brings value to your customers. Like most professionals though, you are most likely not trained in the field of opera- tional excellence & improvement and therefore although working very hard, you could be wasting precious time each week on non-value-added work.

You wouldn’t be alone. No matter their size, most organizations evolve over time into vertical silos or functional group- ings of tasks. Unfortunately, value created for your customers is through work that flows horizontally, not vertically. This is where the waste hides. In 2019, the most valuable resource to anyone is time. It’s critical to learn the skills to identify hidden waste in work processes and implement practical solutions to optimize the time you have, to grow your business.

In this workshop you will:

  • Be introduced to what productivity truly is and is not, and why you should care

  • Identify your personal ‘peak productivity’ time of day and how to optimize it

  • Learn to identify what value-added work is, versus value enabling work & non-value-added work or waste

  • Be introduced to all the forms of process waste and how to identify them in your business

  • Learn practical solutions to minimize waste and maximizing the efficiency of your business processes
