Business Process Improvement Maximizing Process Efficiency

Maximizing Process Efficiency

Mobile

Time IS money. It's the money you spend delivering a product or service. It's the money your company loses when a customer decides your service is too slow. It's the money that seeps from your bottom line when your processes are inefficient.

Too often, "efficiency" efforts try to slash cycle time and costs with across the board cuts, which ultimately diminish both value and revenue. This seminar will prepare you with Lean tools and techniques to remove waste –any activity or by-product that is not of value to your customer– and optimize flow.
