Presentation Description:

Lean is a systematic means of eliminating waste in order to drive customer value.  Lean principles have existed for some time and have been applied to manufacturing and production extensively.  Lean has helped countless companies improve processes and do more with their existing resources. Historically, these principles have not been applied in human resource management.  However, this is increasingly being done.  This presentation will walk attendees through the basics of Lean, its benefits, and then offer examples of how Lean can be applied to human resource management.  Learning Lean will help to equip human resource professionals with knowledge and tools that will help them to solve problems not only within human resources but also in business in general.
