From 24-25 May, Hawke’s Bay businesses will get the chance to learn lean techniques that improve productivity with Callaghan Innovation’s Better By Lean programme.

Callaghan Innovation in partnership with the University of Auckland and Business Hawke’s Bay (BHB), will run Better by Lean training at the Hawke’s Bay Business Hub from 24-25 May.

Better by Lean is a two-day workshop and coaching programme that applies a lean thinking lens to an entire operational system including development processes, workflows, supply chains, production lines, distribution channels and customer touchpoints – to boost competitiveness and performance. The workshop is facilitated by Bryan Travers, a consultant specialising in performance excellence.

After the May programme, participants will be invited to meet with a Better by Lean coach to get their lean implementation underway. There is co-funding available for qualifying businesses for eligible costs.

The programme is open to up to three people per business and priority is given to businesses new to Better by Lean programmes.

Participants can also apply to join a Hawke’s Bay cluster of fellow businesses that are applying lean strategies to gain support and share insights and ideas.
