“Need for Speed”, Lean Operations in Global Supply Chain Management

“A traveler on the frontier found himself out of his reckoning one night in a most inhospitable region.  A terrific thunderstorm came up, to add to his trouble.  He floundered along until at length his horse gave out.  The lightning afforded him the only clue to his way, but the peals of thunder were frightful.  One bolt, which seemed to crush the earth benieath him, brought him to his knees.  By no means a praying man, his petition was short and to the point: ‘O Lord, if it’s all the same to you, give us a little more light and little less noise.’” *

 Industry today is awash in wonky jargon and papers that serve more to complicate and intimidate than educate.  Lean focuses on driving only those supply chain improvements that truly matter to the customer and the bottom line.  Ted will address the futility of concentrating on “domain” improvements and concentrating on “systems thinking” to achieve broader operational improvement efforts.


 Presented by, 

Theodore Ken Mayeshiba, MBA. Lecturer, USC (part-time)
