Interested in implementing Lean or is your current Lean program struggling?

Please join Alberta Agriculture & Rural Development, along with Growing Forward for a highly interactive workshop that will educate senior management on how to successfully implement and sustain continuous improvements.   Many organizations fail to realize that Lean needs to be implemented top–down rather than bottom–up. This workshop will help senior managers recognize that there’s a lot more to lean than the tools.
