How you start the new year will set the tone and pace for the rest of the year. It isnt about the resolutions it is about the follow through. If the goals and resolutions you create are realistic the main reason people dont follow through is all mindset.
We will start the year off the year of productivity by talking about Lean as a mindset, so we can shift the way we look at things. Many people first heard about Lean as part of manufacturing. It is most quantifiable in this atmosphere but can be applied anywhere and everywhere.
On this show we are going to teach you what LEAN is and how simple it can be to identify and eliminate waste. In addition we will look at why people fail in their implementation and YOU can avoid it.
