Lead the Change

Feel confident as a Lean coach, whether you are just starting out or are a Supply Chain Manager (SCM), with the Introduction to Lean Supply Chain & Logistics Facilitator Guide. Providing an abundance of annotated notes, suggestions for presentation, tips for facilitating, and even a section that can be read verbatim to the participants, you never have to worry again. Training your staff in metrics, waste, warehousing, distribution, and integration has never been easier!

Identify and Eliminate the 8 Wastes

People learn best when they engage multiple senses; help your employees learn the 8 Wastes of Lean by seeking out and identifying wastes in your own organization. By working together to identify wastes you build teamwork, encourage a more responsive system, integrate the complexities within the supply chain under one goal, and begin to build the foundation for a continuous improvement program.

Team Building with the Flow Simulation

Build confidence, understanding, and retention of concepts using the included Flow Simulation. The Flow Simulation provides hands-on, interactive learning to stimulate new thoughts and ideas while taking participants from a traditional batch processing system to a pull, One-Piece Flow system. Participants will gain an understanding of the Bullwhip Effect, how to avoid it, and understand how the entire supply chain integrates together.

Communicate Clearly

Many companies fail to sustain a Lean environment because the principles and ideas behind the initial transformation were not clear to everyone involved. Clearly define value added and non-value added throughout your entire system. By communicating the fundamental elements of Lean within the Supply Chain, Distribution, and Logistics environment, as well as the history behind Lean and why it works, your staff will understand why change is necessary and how they can assist in the transformation, leading to your company achieving a successful transformation.

You’ve read a few books, taken some classes, and you know what the Lean principles are but where do you start? Learn how to put your knowledge into practice using Enna’s Training Packages.

Create Your Internal Experts

Train your workforce to be active and engaging Lean Experts who take ownership of their workplace and drive lasting sustainable change throughout the organization. These people have creative time and cost saving ideas; if only they were given the support to implement them. We have designed our materials for these up and coming experts; providing the supportive materials for both the first time facilitator and seasoned trainer.

Components of our Training Packages

Facilitator Guide – Provides the facilitator with notes on presenting to the participants, background information to read before presenting that explains each slide and all the information presented, and holds the answer key to the assessment at the end of the training.

Participant Workbook – It is important for each participant to have their own workbook, as it provides each slide in the presentation with ample room for taking notes.

Preparation Guide – This accompanies each Training Package and outlines necessary materials, a timetable for each day including breaks and an approximation of how long each section should take to present and discuss, and provides a general list of activities and items that should be prepared for the workshop.

Forms – During the workshop phase of our Training Packages we provide the necessary forms to analyze and assess your operations.

Posters – The posters provided with each Training Package are a high impact, visual reminder of the concepts and tools covered during training. Use them in the training room and around the work area to reinforce the tools, methods, and concepts learned.

Tags – Are used to identify and select items of importance and vary depending on the subject matter and training package. These are used during the workshop portion of training.
