From the Press

Review for our Webinar "Daily Standards for Lean Supervisors"

"Supervisors have challenging jobs responding to management, assisting associates, and responding to the often sudden challenges that emerge in safety, quality, and delivery. This is like being 'between a rock and hard place' for many supervisors."  This is one of the reasons why our webinar "Daily Standards for Lean Supervisors", presented by Mike Wroblewski, Director of Kaizen Institute USA, was filled up quickly and received high remarks in a recent article from the IndustryWeek - http://www.industryweek.com/articles/five_skills_of_a_lean_supervisor_27051.aspx?SectionID=2 

More Webinars on Lean Leader Standard Work are on the way - please check back to join!
