Lean in Service-Oriented Organizations

Presented By:  Robert Olinger, Owner and Lead Trainer, A+ Talent Development

The application of Lean principles and tools has grown in service-oriented organizations including medical, government, higher education, and nonprofits. The foundation of Lean, respect for people, is a natural fit in the service industries. This session provides information about Lean and the tools that nonprofit organizations can use to improve value delivery to stakeholders.


1. Define value from the stakeholder’s perspective.

2. Make the invisible, visible through process mapping.

3. Improve synchronized flow by reducing waste.

Recommended for participants bring any procedure manuals, process maps or information, and blank forms they routinely have to fill out.
