Organizations across all sectors expect their SCM Professionals to:
• Improve Quality
• Reduce Cost
• Reduce Delivery Times
• Enhance Customer and Employee morale
• Improve Safety and Security of the product
• Reduce the Carbon footprint

In Lean, all these expectations are known as KPIs or Key Performance indicators. Waste, Inefficiencies, Roadblocks, Bottlenecks, and Problems emerge every day that negatively affects day to day operations and KPIs. With the help of Lean, Six Sigma, Agile and Kanban Thinking, SCM professionals can create a robust structure of LEAN Daily Management, and they will be able to engage their staff in bringing all the Waste to the surface. Once they find "Waste" in the day to day operations, they can motivate their teams to make daily small process improvements.


Develop professionals who understand the meaning of "Value," "Variation," and "Waste." This training will teach you to "find waste" and make daily "small process improvements."
