Areas of Focus
To become a lean supply chain professional, you need to first become a lean thinker and lean problem solver. This is the first course in a 3-course series on becoming a Lean Supply Chain professional. Students will be introduced to lean thinking and critical lean concepts. In addition, students will become proficient problem solvers through gained skills of waste identification and use of fundamental problem solving tools to eliminate waste at the root cause.
This first course is a pivot point in the educational process, and this is where current mental models and business paradigms will be challenged. Participants will learn to see operations from a new vantage point. Upon arrival back to the workplace, participants will be able to "talk" the talk of lean and also have a keen eye for operational waste. However, the real test of the first course is when the participant can "walk" the lean walk and solve business problems at the root cause, completely eliminating the problem for the organization.
This course is no longer being offered on the Georgia Tech campus, but will be offered at the Georgia Tech Panama Logistics Innovation & Research Center, June 21-23, 2016. Please visit http://www.gatech.pa/education/executive-courses/#upcoming for more information.
