Montreal Section : Lean and Statistical Thinking 490
Montreal Section : Lean and Statistical Thinking
Some people associate Lean with the elimination of waste and Six Sigma with the reduction of variability. In fact, Lean is much more about variability reduction than most people think. In this conference, you will see why it is not possible to have a continuous flow in the presence of variability. You should leave the conference with a better understanding of why statistical thinking is a very important skill for all Lean practitioners and leaders.
