This interactive presentation looks at the transformation of receiving product at Al’s Garden & Home. Before Lean was applied, the team had to physically touch each product 11 times. Employees had to stop to make corrections or ask for help. Products were processed inefficiently, in batches, due to seasonality. No standard work procedures were in place. Learn how one of the region’s top garden retailers applied Lean principles to cut days off their time to receive product and slashed their labor cost per unit by 30 percent. In doing so, the company gave its employees the ability to work creatively as a team to improve the business. Join this seminar to improve your workflows and teamwork, ask question and get inspired!
