ACTLean and Schuh & Company announce Lean Innovation Workshop

Lawrenceville, GA, October 4, 2010 – ACTLean will offer a 2-day workshop discussing Lean Innovation Topics in Atlanta, GA on November 4th and 5th, 2010. The workshop will focus on methods to create more customer value with fewer resources in product development.

What does Lean Thinking have to do with Product Development?
The biggest waste in Innovation is to come up with a product design no customer is asking for, followed by creating a product design that is unnecessarily expensive and complex to manufacture. Another common waste is not meeting project deadlines and spending more precious resources than necessary during the design work.
This is where Lean Innovation comes into play
The basic idea behind the Lean Management approach is to create value without waste. This idea also transfers to the research and development processes. Under the leadership of the Technical University of Aachen, Germany, some 142 enterprises, among them renowned companies like Audi, Airbus, BASF, MTU, and Porsche, worked together and researched twelve core principles of Lean Innovation.
Through a successful implementation of the Lean Innovation principles, the net benefit of research and development can be maximized, therefore achieving a high innovation performance with appropriate efforts.
In this workshop we will present the key principles of how to effectively organize the R&D process to deliver customer value at lower cost. You will also be introduced to the state-of-the-art methods to actually make it happen in your organization. Additional break-out sessions will provide the opportunity to share your experiences informally with other R&D professionals.
The workshop is held at the Georgia Tech Hotel & Conference Center in Atlanta, GA for $985. Price includes tuition, all training materials, breakfast, lunch and snacks each day as well as networking and dinner on Day 1.
For complete details about content, instructors, discounts, and to register, go to www.actlean.org/leaninnovation or call 678-810-0885.

What is Lean Thinking?

Lean Thinking means “Creation of Value without Waste”.

The goal of Lean Thinking is to streamline all activities necessary for the creation of value and eliminate everything else. A strong orientation towards the customers, their expectations and requirements of the product regarding price, availability, and quality, has to be balanced with the internal perspective of the enterprise, it's processes and systems.

ACTLean is Schuh & Company’s operational branch that teaches Lean thinking philosophies and techniques.

ACTLean offers Lean Management training and coaching for companies that want to begin the Lean Journey or need additional help.

ACTLean does not believe in ordinary training, but an integrated practical and theoretical learning approach. Therefore, we incorporate training of methods with simulations and learning factories.
In addition, the company offers assessments that help you evaluate how far along you have come on your Lean Journey.
