Creating a Lean Supply Chain

Eliminating waste and complexity in the supply chain

Program Description:

Most discussions of lean management focus on internal manufacturing while ignoring the many improvement opportunities that exist across the supply chain. Creating a Lean Supply Chain presents an end-to-end perspective of lean that moves beyond the traditional and often narrow view of lean supply. Special emphasis is given not only on how to eliminate supply chain waste, but also how to eliminate complexity. The workshop includes lectures, videos, current readings and case analysis. The faculty instructor is a renowned thought leader in the field of procurement negotiation and supply chain management and is an expert in strategic sourcing, supply market intelligence, and supplier development. The instructor serves as a Professor of Supply Chain Management at North Carolina State University’s Poole College of Management and as an Adjunct Professor at the Supply Chain Management Research Group at the Manchester Business School. He is a globally recognized leader in the field, contributing regularly to the intellectual capital of Supply Chain Management. In this customized TNI seminar, participants will learn how to create a Lean Supply Chain from an end-to-end perspective and the skills, tactics and knowledge learned can be immediately implemented when participants return to their workplace.
