Listen and learn about different tips and tricks to pull plan using Last Planner System from others as we collaboratively dive a little deeper into this topic through a facilitated Lean Coffee format discussion afterwards.

Workplace organization is more than just keeping things neat and tidy, it is a way of supporting Lean thinking. Understanding the 5S methodology for organizing your work, will set your organization on the first steps towards setting up a continuous improvement and Lean culture. In this interactive presentation, you will familiarize yourself with five Japanese actions and begin to transform your workplace. Avel Espiritu (Red-5) will be offering his insight into this engaging and often misunderstood topic. The presentation, and interactive session will be followed by a Lean Coffee style question & answer period so you can dive into this topic even deeper with your peers. All are welcome from the casual to the experts in Lean practice!

It's possible to do more with less effort – which is important in Alberta's economy today, more than ever before.

By understanding the principles of Lean, business owners and managers can begin to lead change in their organizations, get employees engaged in solving problems, and begin to integrate continuous improvement thinking into their corporate culture. All of that will result in improved productivity and a happier customer.

No matter what your organization does, Lean will help you do it better. Lean methodology is being applied in a broad range of enterprises including construction, engineering, architecture, manufacturing, processing, health care, banking, and government services.

Lean 8Wastes Red5


The LCI-Canada Edmonton Community of Practice hosts a Lean Coffee on the third Friday of every month from September through June, from 8:00am – 10:00am (locations vary). Lean practitioners from our local community meet to discuss various Lean issues and lessons learned through a "structured agenda less" process whereby attendees decide the topics of conversation for the day.  All are welcome, from beginners to Lean experts, and there is no expectations for participation - some people come to every meeting, others come when they can.  The meetings are fun and tend to include a lot of laughter and we'd love to see you there.

For more information, or to be added to our mail-out and CoP message board, please contact Avel Espiritu at Red-5. 

This is a program organized by the LCI-Canada Edmonton Community of Practice (CoP). More information on Lean practice and culture can be found at LCICanada.ca!
