from Humana share their Lean knowledge with you!   

As natural problem solvers we create innovative solutions to drive our organizations forward.  While these innovations are critical they must be applied with a "Lean State of Mind" in an environment that supports problem solving using quality tools. 

During this session you will identify waste and calculate savings, determine how to produce standardized and sustainable learning processes and create an action plan that drives strategic and Lean business results.
