    Lean Production and Lean Management

    • Pascal Forget, presenter, Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières

    In the last decades, more and more organizations looked at the concepts and techniques issued from the Lean Production approach. More recently, this approach has been applied to management activities and public sectors.

    The objective of this seminar is to offer to participants a synthesis of the underlining principles of Lean philosophy (also referred to as the Toyota Production System) and a brief look into the deployment of a typical Lean project. With examples from production and management activities, participants will be able to judge the opportunity of Lean to increase efficiency in various organizations.
