Description

To create a more resilient, sustainable and successful organization, an effective ergonomics process should be at the core of Continuous Improvement (CI) efforts. Otherwise, even the best intentioned efforts will fail or fade away. Dr. Budnick will review the fundamentals of an effective CI process, particularly in lean management approaches, and define how ergonomics methods and principles not only overlap and complement many components of CI tools and processes, but are essential to their success.
