This short, small group size program, will provide a safe space for small businesses to share their operational challenges, receive group support, benefit from the groups shared experience, and be trained & mentored by an expert facilitator. The group will learn how lean and other business improvement techniques can be used to offset the additional costs of lowered productivity due to new COVID related processes. 

This will be done through learning Eyes for Waste & exploring how Lean Workplace Organisation can be used to redesign processes to implement Social Distancing and maintain productivity.
