Webinar – No Cost
Lean thinking changes the way a company approaches work on a daily basis, from developing and implementing strategy to producing products and delivering services to customers. This change in thinking centers on a relentless commitment to continuous improvement, so that customers benefit from products and services that are high quality and easy to acquire, employees are set up to be successful in delivering these products and services, and the company enjoys sustained strong growth and financial performance.
At the core of lean thinking is the continuous improvement cycle – Plan, Do, Check, Adjust. Employees at all levels learn to incorporate this as a habit into their daily work. Organizations often introduce this continuous improvement thinking and the practices and tools that support it in their customer-facing operations, but adopting it in Accounting and Finance is critical in ensuring that the foundational business processes that the company relies on are effective, efficient and scalable. This is one of the many reasons that Lean Accounting is an essential part of a lean transformation.
When the Accounting and Finance teams strive on a daily basis to ensure that receivables, payables, payroll, financial planning, regulatory reporting, treasury and all other key functions and processes are functioning optimally, they build confidence in business processes and remove distractions for the company and its customers that allow the company to focus on profitable growth, and employees to free up capacity to make the best use of their skills and capabilities in supporting improved results.
In this one-hour classroom-style, interactive webinar, you will:
- Learn the basic application of lean continuous improvement to accounting processes
- Explore case studies that illustrate practical examples
- Begin to develop your own lean improvement plan for your accounting and finance teams
