In the 1950s, Toyota pioneered “lean manufacturing,” a practice adopted by manufacturers around the world. But lean doesn’t just apply to manufacturing giants. The methodology is just as valuable to businesses of any size and sector that have processes, whether to manufacture a product or to deliver a service. Join the Performance Measurement & Improvement team at the William Davidson Institute as we provide an overview of how the  Toyota Production System lean thinking can be applied with businesses in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to improve processes and reduce waste. In this webinar, we’ll show how to empower your company with lean tools and data to strengthen problem solving and bottom-line performance.
