Albanesa Ymaya, CLSSBB, Ymaya Lean Academy
JJ Puentes, KaiNexus
A few months back, a KaiNexus customer suggested that we host a webinar that is presented in Spanish. So we are trying that with this webinar — with an option for English speakers, as well.
The webinar will be presented live, in Spanish, on December 8th. Q&A will be moderated in Spanish. But, if you register for the webinar, we will send you an English-language recording of the webinar and you will be able to submit questions via email.
In this webinar, our presenter will share a deep understanding of two LEAN approaches to support business transformation — Kaikaku and Kaizen Events. We will review general definitions around these terms and will explain the goal of each approach, the commonalities, the differences, and the benefits.
At the end of the webinar, you will understand why “Kaikaku First and Kaizen Event Later” is a useful approach. Finally Albanesa will share the formula she uses to achieve a real lean transformation in any business.
