One of the toughest workforce challenges in 2019 is maintaining a high performing LEAN culture. Over time, chaos creeps in, workers become demotivated and productivity drops. Procedures that worked well in the past get taken for granted, and your world creeps back to a wasteful state. How do we keep the productivity flywheel spinning?  This fast-paced session will take a look back at the history of the LEAN theory before jumping into how motivate today’s employees, manage change, and hire employees that will ensure your facility operates efficiently.
