"Developing a Lean Attitude?" - Not achieved with a Roll of the Dice.

This presentation was designed to be a light-hearted but thought-provoking session which focuses on our relationships with customers and the new attitudes necessary to deal with or respond to the customer requirements within a Lean Office – a Lean Business – a Lean Operation and the Lean Enterprise.

Lean Operations is a philosophy that emphasizes the minimization of all resources used in the various activities of the enterprise. A Lean Enterprise is an organization with a focus on waste elimination and the customer’s needs in all parts of its operations, manufacturing, and administration.

Understanding is the backbone to a successful organization. Only with a lean attitude toward customer service can the culture of the organization embrace lean and begin to change for the benefit of the customer.

Providing employees with the information and processes necessary to know their customers, understand their needs, and effectively build relationships between the organization and the customer base – that customer base is more likely to be delighted to do business with you for the long term.

Real life company situations and problems will be discussed.

Conference Chair's Message 

Joel Smith

Continuous Improvement is not just something a Lean Six Sigma (LSS) practitioner leads their organization in practicing, but is also a core competency of their professional makeup. That is why more and more innovative and leading companies are looking for leaders that use the LSS way of thinking in everything they do within their organization.

In this era of data science and machine learning, the ability to connect the dots for end to end solutions across the boundaries of people, process and systems is the key to success. This year’s conference is focused on making sure we are “continuing” our journey as practitioners. Whatever your level of experience, you will learn new concepts, new perspectives and network with the best in the industry.
