Session Description:

Lean thinking and Lean Six Sigma have found widespread application in manufacturing and services and more and more companies discover that the principles apply equally well to the innovation creation process. In fact the benefits for applying lean to R&D and innovation in manufacturing and services can be significantly higher than those achieved in plants and offices.

This presentation covers the following topics:

  • The key principles and how they are appropriately applied in the different phases of the innovation process
  • Examples and case studies of successful implementations
  • Key tools and features:
    • The lean startup and creation process
    • The set based concurrent knowledge development process
    • The fast and predictable product creation process
  • How to engage people in a lean transformation
