Greenbelt Vancouver Summer Module 2

33 participants of Greenbelt Operations & Service classes got together in Vancouver again for Module 2 of their program this week. One of the major tasks for these classes will be a Cycle Time & Process Time Reduction Assignment for a large manufacture and financial institution.


Before they tackled the hands-on kaizen, they took part in an exercise, making paper airplanes with their teammates.  Key pointsto take away from this exercise- Measure the cycle-time, balance the production line and always keep the customer demands in mind!

Mike Hoseus Lean Leadership and Transformation Event

As you know, we are bringing Mike Hoseus to Vancouver and Calgary as part of our Executive program in a few weeks.

What you might not know, however, are the following facts:

- A similar workshop of Mike's, at the most recent AME Lean Conference was rated number one among all workshops
- The one-day session is almost full, with only a limited number of spots left.
- Mike will share new insights that you will be able to use immediately


Want to know what the session will be like?  Take a peek at our YouTube video from our Lean Summit, where the three authors of the Toyota Way books spoke at LSI's most successful conference.
