Lean Your Life!

A Half-Day Workshop


In this half-day workshop, Jeff Fuchs, Director of the Maryland World Class Consortia, will share practical insights for the first-person applications of lean.  Discover how lean can make your life more productive, predictable, stress-free, and rewarding.  See how lean can be applied both at home and at work.



Lean tools and methods apply to all industries and processes.  In recent years, people have come to understand that lean is not just for factories.  Lean works for all types of office work, as well - the methods need only be adjusted to suit particular applications.  Recently, the frontiers of lean have moved toward explaining more clearly how lean applies to personal processes – the “factory of one”.


This workshop is designed for: Overworked executives, frazzled spouses, frustrated employees, disgruntled kids, disorganized entrepreneurs, or anyone else wanting to learn how to use simple, common-sense ways to improve their personal and professional lives.


Learn how to make more available time in your day, decrease stress and chaos, and use lean tools like standard work, visual management, mistake-proofing, pull systems, and more.  Improve your personal life and that of those around you!
