Lean Management, When Less Is More

DOST 7 Banilad S&T Complex, Gov. M. Cuenco Ave., Banilad, Cebu City

Now on its second run, ECCP Cebu is mounting a half-day seminar dubbed as "LEAN MANAGEMENT, When Less is More". Resource person is Mr. Macario Balali, former President of the Philippine Productivity and Quality Movement in the Visayas and an HR professional at the executive level for 20 years in different large corporations. He is also an MBA professor on Operations Management, Strategic Management and Problem Solving and Decision Making.


LEAN mindset and thinking can guide organizations in creating value to customers at the shortest possible time and the least possible cost. How is this possible? Elimination of waste in business processes - the non-value adding operations that customers are not willing and happy to pay for and are unnecessary to the product or service provided - will be thoroughly discussed during the half-day session.

"LEAN MANAGEMENT, When Less is More" is intended for senior executives, managers, supervisors, and HR leaders.
