Lean 101

Start your Lean journey with us.

Lean 101 is a four-hour basic Lean introduction to get your team speaking the same language and working toward the same goals.

CITEC offers this training both as a public session or in-house at your facility. The public session covers Eight Wastes, Workplace Organization (5S) and Standard Work with engaging exercises that really drive home the main points. In-house sessions can be customized to your specific needs. Either way, your organization will immediately save time and resources, and you will have begun a Lean journey that leads to long-term employee engagement and continuous improvement.

Funding assistance may be available. Please contact Steve Lockwood for details.

Contact Steve Lockwood today for more information and/or to find out when our next public session will begin.

"The results were immediately eye-opening and we found many obsolete and nonessential items taking up space, causing waste and costing money. From the endeavor we added about seven percent of floor space with very low cost."
