Marlborough, MA (PRWEB) January 9, 2007
Altico Advisors LLC (http://www.AlticoAdvisors.com), a Microsoft Certified Partner, today announced that they will be sponsoring a one-hour informational Webinar on January 17th entitled "What Can Lean Do for You?: Using Lean to Improve Your Company's Competitiveness."
It's a buzz word. But it's also a philosophy and a process. In its simplest form, one could say that "Lean" is about cutting the fat because it's a way of organizing a business that emphasizes delivering higher quality goods and services in less time and with less effort, space and capital. So one might also say that "Lean" is about driving savings to the bottom line.
The featured speaker, Tom McBride, is a Lean expert. In 1999, Tom founded Partners for Creative Solution, a company dedicated to helping enterprises eliminate waste and maximize quality, customer service and profit. His seminars on waste reduction using Lean principles and Six Sigma tools have been sponsored by such organizations as the Central Massachusetts Employers' Association and the Purchasing Managers' Association of Boston.
Industry Week magazine recently polled U.S. manufacturers and found that 40 percent of those responding are applying the lean philosophy for making improvements in their operations. Lean is the most powerful production methodology in the world today and it is quickly gaining momentum. The presentation will address these key questions:
- What is Lean?
- Who is using it?
- How does Lean compare to other processes such as Six Sigma?
- How will Lean make my company more competitive and more profitable?
- What efficiencies will Lean bring to my operations?
- Where can I find more information about Lean?
- How do I get started?
"The Principles of Lean" Web seminar will run from 11:00 a.m. to Noon EST on Wednesday, January 17th. Interested parties can contact Marcia Doron at Altico Advisors by phone or e-mail for more information. 508-485-5588 x107
