Today was the kick-off for NWIRC’s Lean Together 2.0. They had their first meeting at Onex, who also has participants in the group. Onex President, Ashleigh Walters, set the stage to highlight the importance of developing people and creating a culture to support successful continuous improvement.  The session today featured activities to better understand critical thinking and communication, along with observing one of Onex’s regular team meetings focusing on their 2 second lean initiatives.

There is still time to join the Lean Together 1.0 group (for beginners)…it starts in August. Lean Together is a 9-month collaborative learning program focused on developing true and lasting cultural changes, where everyone’s job is making small incremental improvements, everyday. Sessions are facilitated by lean expert, Craig Corsi, and include facility tours, discussion focused on the book 2 Second Lean by Paul Akers, and company-specific onsite assistance.
