WABASH VALLEY LEAN NETWORK
WVLN helps organizations transform their modes of operation through process-based innovation and end-to-end business process improvement.
WHAT WABASH VALLEY LEAN NETWORK DOES
WVLN members also capitalize on Lean-related learning opportunities, field trips, benchmarking visits and access to new resources.
WVLN also helps members improve quality management systems and stay compliant with International Quality Systems Standards.
HOW WABASH VALLEY LEAN NETWORK WORKS
WVLN provides these benefits by arranging for members to gather once each month to learn from each other.
Each WVLN membership meeting is planned to cover 3-hours so a particular Lean topic can be discussed in depth, and application case studies from various industries can be presented.
Meetings also provide valuable time for members to network with speakers, and other Lean practitioners.
The WVLN Steering Committee plans the monthly programs and arranges other WVLN events.
WHO PARTICIPATES IN WABASH VALLEY LEAN NETWORK
Although Lean concepts were developed to improve performance of manufacturing operations, Lean tools have been adapted to improve performance of non-manufacturing and office operations.
