LUNCH & LEARN: “Fit for Purpose” The Principles of LEAN Production

Reduce your waste and get LEAN!

These workshops being held in both Blackpool and Accrington will give attendees a broad understanding of LEAN fundamentals through an experiential and entertaining learning event.
LEAN principles are:-
1. Understand what is important and valued by the customer
2. Understand the current process
3. Identify and remove unnecessary wastes from the process
4. Ensure the process is driven by customer demand
5. Continuously identify opportunities for further improvement

A Lean process should deliver the product or service to the customer (however defined) as quickly as possible where waste, errors and re-work have been removed, as far as practicable.

This event will focus on one of the many potential wastes, movement.

The workshop will be presented by Graham Leather, a highly experienced business professional with operational experience across manufacturing line management, sales, and business development and with almost 20 years’ experience of implementing business improvement/ change management programmes across a broad range of industries, from food and health to metal forging and the service sector.
Graham has worked within many cultures and countries including India, UAE, Europe, USA, and the Far East.
Graham has a first degree in minerals engineering from the University of Birmingham and an MBA from the Open University.

The event will start at 12:00 with lunch and networking, with the session starting from 12:30. Following the session there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and for further networking over refreshments.

The Chamber Low Carbon team will be on hand to discuss the support and funding available through the Low Carbon programme.

This workshop is part of a regular Lunch & Learn series giving Lancashire businesses the knowledge and tools to go green. To keep up-to-date with further workshops subscribe to the Chamber Low Carbon newsletter.
