Description

In the early 2000s, Parker and many companies around the world underwent a significant transformation, driven by the success of Toyota and other premier Japanese manufacturers in implementing lean manufacturing strategies. While many of these core principles have continued to be utilized, the focus on rapid improvement – kaizen – had shifted to longer-term improvement projects. 

In his role as Parker vice president of lean and quality, Steve Moore has spent more than a decade helping Parker to take a fresh look at these proven lean principles and the significant value they can add in today’s manufacturing environment. In this session, Moore will explore the role of lean as part of Parker’s Win Strategy business system, how to leverage kaizen events to identify and rapidly address opportunities for continuous improvement, and why high performance teams have been critical to driving employee engagement at Parker.
