10 Workshops Help Canadian Companies Compete

    CAMBRIDGE, MASS., August 14 /CNW/ - A series of 10 lean management
workshops will help companies in Canada defend jobs and grow profitably,
according to workshop sponsor the Lean Enterprise Institute (LEI) .

    The workshops will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Delta Chelsea
Downtown Toronto hotel, 33 Gerrard St. West.

    Lean management principles support profitable growth by improving
productivity and quality, reducing lead times, and freeing capacity. For
example, it frees office and plant space and increases capacity so companies
can add product lines, in-source component production, and increase output of
existing products. Companies implementing lean can take advantage of economic
growth by increasing sales while controlling costs.
