Growing Lean in your business: What you need to know
Are you considering Lean for your business? Studies show that most companies who attempt some type of Lean initiative will begin strong, then fall back to the old ways of doing business. In this webinar, we interview Rick and Elizabeth Peters, whose approach to Lean has helped dozens of nursery businesses launch and sustain their Lean deployment over the long term. They discuss the process, what’s involved, and the key leadership factors required for building a successful Lean company. If you want to start on the right track with Lean--and continually improve over the long term, watch this compelling interview and Q&A session.
