91st Annual International Conference Proceedings - 2006 - Minneapolis, MN
Abstract

This presentation will give attendees an easy to use method to strategically analyze administrative processes, eliminate waste and increase overall communication, effectiveness and awareness. The lean event is a logical, meticulous way of identifying inefficiencies and eliminating waste. Each lean event involves participants from the process being examined, customer(s) and objective employees. Together, the group discusses how tasks are completed, defines who’s responsible for the actions at every step, identifies wasteful activities to change or eliminate and creates the framework for the future state. Both the current and future state versions of the process are mapped.

This information will be shared in a how-to fashion by the founders of the program.
