Lean Product Development Workshop
June 2, 2009

Despite an increasing need for speed and efficiency, much of the effort expended by product development teams is often unnecessary and potentially wasteful. In many cases, only one hour in eight of team members’ time is spent directly creating value for their customers.

This Lean Product Development Workshop presents a set of leading-edge, practical tools for slashing waste and increasing speed and efficiency. The “Lean Methods” described in this course enable dramatic reductions in time-to-market while freeing up valuable resources for additional project work. Firms that have embraced these practical, waste-eliminating tools have reported up to fifty-percent reduction in launch schedules, significant improvements in gross margin, and enhanced customer satisfaction. This hands-on workshop includes a step-by-step process for customizing your own lean process that will enable rapid, high-value product development.

Workshop is ideal for design engineers, process owners, product-line managers, team leaders, task managers, functional managers, operations managers, six-sigma black belts / green belts, improvement champions, and all others with product development responsibilities.
