“LEAN” Systems in Supply Management: Driving a Culture of Continuous Improvement to Increase Performance

About This Session

LEAN is often a tool used in manufacturing facilities and not always evaluated in office environments.  With supply organizations buying more today we can no longer continue to operate the same way we did 10 years ago in a constrained environment.   Through a Supplier Management Production System, you can see how the “7 Lean Principles” have been put together through minimal standards that teams work to in order to transform culture and become the way a high performing team operates.  The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate how supply management professionals can implement a system to drive a mindset change for their teams that is directly linked to their internal performance leading to increased supplier performance.
