What You'll Learn

Lean manufacturing has long been associated with waste reduction, continuous improvements to processes, and capacity gains in the world of manufacturing. It is, in fact, all those things and more.

Now, as we continue the conversations of the Vanishing Workforce and explore ways to combat the problems caused by too few workers, let’s look at Lean from an efficiency gain point of view. Can the principles and ideas found in Lean manufacturing translate into better retention and the need for fewer workers? Can your workforce actually reduce the work effort and increase output?

The language doesn’t have to be “how we do more with less,” but rather “how do we make the most of every operating minute?”

No matter the business you are in, performing work in the most efficient ways possible is going to be a key element in the retention battle. Not only should we explore ways to be more efficient for efficiency’s sake, but worker satisfaction also grows when the job becomes more productive with less effort.
