Lean Administration
“Lean” techniques successfully used by manufacturers are now finding their way into administrative offices. Lean Offices increase productivity by streamlining administrative functions to eliminate non-value added activities that frustrate employees and customers.

Lean manufacturers benefit from aligning administrative functions with the same concepts of lean being used on the plant floor.

In many offices, the increased volume of information with computerized records and transactions has caused delays and reduced service. Using Lean Office techniques to manage this flow of data, learn how to eliminate waste, save time and increase employee satisfaction.

This Lean Office training will show you how to adopt and modify many of the same proven principles of eliminating waste used by manufacturers to improve office effectiveness.
