RCBI teams with Lean Enterprise Institute to offer free webinar on lean strategy deployment in a disruptive environment

May 19, 2020 | Categories: Member News

The Robert C. Byrd Institute (RCBI) and the Lean Enterprise Institute will present a free webinar titled Shifting, Aligning and Executing a Strategy in a Disruptive Environment on May 28, at 2 p.m. EDT.

The hour-long webinar is an introduction to Hoshin Kanri, a core lean process that aligns – both vertically and horizontally – an organization’s functions, processes, activities and people. The Hoshin Kanri process helps companies focus on their objectives and determine the particular steps to achieve them.

“In addition to addressing the challenges brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, this webinar will be beneficial to mining and other industries adjusting to shifting market forces,” said Erica Cheetham, director of Quality Services at RCBI.

Presenters will include Mark Reich, senior coach for the Lean Enterprise Institute, who spent 23 years with Toyota and led its North American Hoshin process; and Laura Mottola, founder of the Lean Mining Institute and a globally recognized leader in technology and innovation in the natural resources sector.
