Vancouver Lean Benchmarking Tour 2016

We have just finished a very successful Vancouver Lean Benchmarking Tour 2016 this week.

The first stop of the tour was British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), one of BC's largest post-secondary institutions. Colin Jones, Master Blackbelt Candidate presented at the beginning of the tour and showed the group around the institution.





We ended the first day by visiting First West Credit Union. First West is the third-largest credit union in BC. Envision Financial, Valley First, Enderby & District Financial and Island Savings operate as divisions of First West.





The second day started at Ideon Packaging. Ideon Packaging is an established company based in Richmond, BC that provides a variety of packaging services.




Our last stop of the tour was Regency Fireplace Products where we witnessed that Lean was a big part of their culture during the detailed factory tour.






A huge thank you to all our gracious hosts for sharing their Lean knowledge and experience with the group. We learned so much and are looking forward bringing this information home to our respective organizations.
