Managing Stress

Effective Time Management

The manufacturing workplace is complex and demanding, which can make it difficult for managers, leaders, and others to get things done. However, as a leader in manufacturing, how you spend your time directly affects the business. In this workshop, you’ll learn tools and techniques you can implement immediately that will help you get things done, making you a more valuable resource to your organization.

Ask the Lean Expert:  How do I rejuvenate Lean/Continuous Improvement?

We did all the right things in our implementation of Lean: we learned the tools, trained our people, and set off for success. If I take a walk through the business, I’ll see all the remnants of past Lean efforts — 5S boards, daily management boards, etc. Where did we go wrong?

In this session, we’ll explore how to re-start/rejuvenate Lean. It worked in the past; let’s look at some ideas to get it moving again!
