Applying Lean Principles in the Office 


office space

Is it time to create value 

for the customer and eliminate waste in the 

office environment?


Given the success of 

Lean in manufacturing, 

it is only natural to bring lean practices into the 

office to tackle inefficient procedures, paperwork and bureaucracy.


Attend the full day Lean Office workshop on Thursday, May 23 and learn to facilitate improvements with the appropriate tools and methodology.


This workshop provides an overview of Lean and its application to office and administrative processes, along with an understanding of how to apply lean in the office and measure the impact of improvement efforts.

  • Find out why so many businesses struggle when implementing Lean in office and administrative processes.
  • Learn how Lean tools can be applied to information-intensive processes in administrative and office environments.
  • Leave with ideas you can put to work in your organization.
Register today and reap the benefits of lean!   More details here.
