LEAN concepts are powerful tools for increasing productivity, attacking wastes and reducing costs. The Airplane Game is a great method for SMEs to look at LEAN processes. 
Participants will learn:
  • Why achieving profitable growth is such a challenge for small and medium sized businesses.

  • Core Lean Manufacturing principles that will help you see opportunity in your business.

  • How to apply Lean through a simple, practical, hands-on simulation.

  • Why a “big company solution” like Lean works so effectively in small businesses.

  • The steps to successful Lean implementation in small and medium businesses.

  • How to unlock growth potential.
