OpEx In Your Office (Class is Full)
Operational Excellence in Your Office – September 17th
Establishing robust flow of information in offices environments is more important than ever due to
common day-to-day challenges, employees working on many different projects at once, and heightened customer demands for timely, consistent service.
This one-day workshop details a step-by-step methodology for leveraging traditional lean value stream flow to establish Operational Excellence through business processes.
Whether an office provides complex engineering designs, financial information, IT services, healthcare plans, or other services, this workshop will explain how to apply in-depth principles such as process family matrices, binary connections, processing cells, work-flow cycles, integration events, pitch, and other techniques to create lean value streams that achieve Operational Excellence in the office. Participants will leave ready to create flow in their own office, design processes for seeing when flow has stopped, and develop methods for regaining flow without management.
• Learn the principles that create Operational Excellence in any business process.
• Find out how to design an office that flows value to the customer and achieves Operational Excellence.
• Hear how to design an office to deliver a service seamlessly, without management intervention.
• Learn how to eliminate meetings and use the saved time to work on offense – or activities that grow the business.
