Lean Finance & Accounting Workshop

July 26, 2017: 8:00 am - July 27, 2017: 4:30 pm


The operational strategy most effective in achieving world-class performance is Lean. Unfortunately, accounting can be an obstacle to the Lean journey as traditional performance metrics are not aligned with nor promote Lean behavior. Operation’s professionals achieve great gains on the production floor but are surprised when there is little evidence of improved operating results on traditional financial reports. Accounting and manufacturing must work together to develop new metrics and “plain English” financial reporting. This class will illustrate the changes required based on 30 years of leading such changes.


Date: July 26 & 27 | Time: 8:00 am – 4:30 pm

Who Should Attend:

This course will benefit all areas of a company – and any company whether in manufacturing or not – as the entire team needs to understand the scorecard of the business and how to motivate Lean behavior.  While accounting professionals will gain a great deal, it is strongly encouraged that manufacturing, product development and continuous improvement associates come as a team in order to build a plan going forward that makes sense for the entire company, both the providers of information and the critical uses of that information.
