Prepare for Post Virus New World

These are very difficult times for organizations and their families.  Many businesses will be negatively impacted by this Covid-19 virus and will struggle to survive.  And if they survive this crisis, then they will be challenged with a whole ‘new’ world of higher customer expectations.

So, let’s be proactive and not reactive!  Let’s take this time when staff are working from home to gain the critical knowledge they will need to be prepared, and support your efforts when the crisis is over.

Lean Advisors has a full interactive Online Yellow Belt Lean Program already used effectively by hundreds of companies, big and small, both manufacturing and service type, around North America.  The learning/knowledge from these Online programs has trained staff on how to adapt and apply Lean to become more flexible, and be able to make them more competitive and successful.

Please stay safe!
