Workshop Abstract

Course Objective
For organisations pursuing Operational Excellence, traditional performance indicators tend to mislead; & sometimes lead managements astray. New performance measures have been devised to align with Lean thinking.

The Obeya room is a cockpit of these measurements and permits quick review and problem solving. Gain an insight into designing and practically implementing a Lean Performance Management System.

Recommended only for people with some initial exposure to both 'know-how' & 'do-how' of Lean manufacturing practices. The 'expert series' programs don't cover the basics. They are designed to equip practioners to take the next big leap!
