A 1-day workshop on how to integrate Lean and Activity-Based Planning to strengthen business process improvement initiatives

About this Event

This one-day online workshop (delivered on 2 successive mornings) covers the basics of Lean and Activity-Based Planning (ABP) and how they can be merged into a comprehensive approach for business modeling, resource management and process improvement. Following the Lean Six Sigma DMAIC approach, combining Lean and ABP offer a means to:

  • Define – understand the problem(s) within the processes and conduct a strategic and operational assessment to determine the best opportunities for business process improvements and utilize a proven methodology to tackle them
  • Measure – recognize non-value-added activities within a process and how to collect and validate operational, financial, and performance data to model current and future state processes
  • Analyze – evaluate model results and explore operational and financial relationship to help recognize root causes for waste (non-value-added work) and other process problems
  • Improve – identify process improvement ideas and test/evaluate potential solutions to assess the impact on throughput, quality, resources, costs and profitability
  • Control – develop strategies to sustain a Lean-ABP program and move towards a continuous improvement culture through understanding leading performance and quality indicators
