Lean Accounting and Accounting for Lean June 19

-A A +A
Tuesday, June 19
8:00 am - 4:00 pm 
Burlington Electric Department, Burlington
This workshop will clearly illustrate why traditional cost management techniques are often at odds with Lean thinking and provide answers on how to develop a set of financial reports, including "Plain English" financial statements that allow everyone in the company to truly understand performance. Exercises will demonstrate how traditional transactional processing needs to be changed in lock-step with Lean changes occurring in manufacturing, and how a working partnership between operations and accounting supports an effective Lean transformation.
This training is designed for both manufacturing leaders AND their financial counterparts to encourage a greater level of alignment between Lean operations and accounting.
Here is a YouTube link to "What is Lean Accounting... in under 10 Minutes".    The instructor for the workshop, Mike DeLuca, is an associate of Jean Cunningham, the presenter on this video.  Jean is a recognized world leader in the application of Lean Thinking to the functions outside of operations in service, manufacturing and healthcare firms.
Participants will develop action plans to apply part of what they have learned to their businesses. Click here to read the full training description and read below what one attendee is saying about his experience during a past Lean Accounting session...
