How to Deal With Lean During Uncertain Times
Many people’s understanding of “lean” has been limited to its use in optimizing the efficiency of existing manufacturing processes. With this narrow definition, it is hard to see how lean is relevant when so many lives have been completely upended by the global pandemic. It is important to note that lean was born in a time of instability, confusion, and scarcity, and that across decades lean has provided direction, a framework for action, and inspiration through periods of disaster and great disruption. In this webinar, we will explore the origins of lean and how it can help people learn in new situations, be more resilient, adaptive, and grow problem-solving capacity.

Agenda:
- The background of Lean and the Toyota Production System
- TPS in times of crisis, and lessons for today
- Examples of lean methods for COVID-19 challenges
- Recommendations for better lean practice
