Session Description:

What is your perception of Lean? It probably seems to involve a lot of Japanese jargons and various tools for manufacturers. Is it useful to you if you are not a manufacturer? We’ve seen many cases of lean implementation in various settings, such as lean office, and many of them show great benefits from improved operations. We’ve also heard people saying they are not so sure about lean, because “we are different,” “our situation is unique,” and so on. Indeed, not all lean tools are applicable in every situation, but the fundamental principles should be. Knowing why the lean tools were created can help us see how they can be used effectively. Therefore, the purpose of this talk is to look into the essence of lean concepts and stimulate thoughts on how a lean system should look like. We will go over some fundamental concepts of operational excellence and see how to use them. Hopefully, we can bring you a new perspective of continuous improvement on efficiency and effectiveness at work and even in daily life.
