Understanding frustrations among employees and customers is a good place to find motivation to improve. Ideas and complaints come easily. But by ensuring everyone has a similar improvement language and perspective you can go a lot further. Teaching all employees how to identify common forms of waste will significantly accelerate your pace of improvement! Join us to see examples from local practitioners, with different operating environments and company cultures, how they have trained their employees to be on the same page and really see waste.

Many examples of lean manufacturing come from companies that make the same parts regularly. It can be tough to understand how those same improvement methods can be applied when you produce make to order products, custom equipment, or systems. Start by understanding the principles behind the improvements, then customize an approach that works for your people and processes. Join us to learn what other low volume manufacturers have done. You will walk away understanding what has worked and what hasn’t from your peers.

Conflict can come from anywhere: a process change, co-worker’s opinions, or a new policy. Consciously selecting the best method to address it is difficult. Do it the right way and people will feel valued, do it the wrong way and watch engagement plummet. Leaders respond to conflict while respecting every individual and getting results. Join us to learn what other manufacturing leaders have done to successfully address and prevent conflict.
