Staff attended Lean Conference

Conference with Paul Akers

During March some of our staff went to a conference and dinner with Paul Akers who is a global champion of the Lean approach to business.

Lean is a method of systematically eliminating waste from a manufacturing system. By reducing waste, Lean makes it easier to identify actions or processes that actually add value to a system.

There are five principles of Lean that business leaders address. These things referred to as ‘The 5S’s of Lean’ are a basic point for those who are new to Lean thinking. The 5S’s are:

    • Sort
    • Straighten
    • Shine
    • Standardize
    • Sustain

Mr Aker is one of its best known and most passionate proponents, he has personally taken the Lean message to 65 countries.
