The 7 Wastes is one of the cornerstones of Lean thinking due to its unambiguous focus on wasteful practices. Waste is costly for businesses, both in terms of time and resources, so the identification and removal of waste can have a hugely beneficial impact on profitability.
During this training course you will learn how we define waste, how to identify it in your place of work, and then how to remove it so that it doesn’t return. Traditionally there are 7 Wastes, as part of a Lean approach, but this has recently been increased to 8 Wastes to include employee talent.
You’ll see real-life examples of the 8 Wastes of Lean in business environments and will undertake exercises that will empower you to clearly see them in your own place of work.
Because the 8 Wastes are so general they can be, and regularly are, applied in any job, function or industry – many people even apply them at home!
This course is available online, in the classroom at one of our training venues or we can come to you. You can be sure that however you choose to learn, you’ll get the same great quality and cover the same content.
By learning the 7/8 Wastes, you’ll be able to increase productivity, increase output without increasing costs and improve staff satisfaction. By removing waste, customer satisfaction also improves as there are fewer defects, mistakes and delays.

Very interesting introduction. This course seems to be putting common sense and experience into one package.
