  • A thorough grounding in the five principles of 'Lean' and how it can work for graphic communication companies;

  • Lean case studies of cost reductions, technology strategies, and improved efficiencies for print media companies;
  • Individual assessment tools to plot the most critical areas of impact and prioritization within your own company;
  • The 'How-Tos' in getting a Lean program jump-started in your organization; and
  • Ways to sustain a long-term operational and strategic lean program.
