Presented by Karidja Sakanogo
Parenting can sometimes be challenging. Parents are quite often expected to not only raise children, but also to raise adults. As one who is passionate about Lean management, I decided to go further by raising Lean thinkers.
The purpose of the presentation is to share the core values and dimensions of Lean management that can alleviate motherhood and fatherhood. Applying Lean principles, methods, and tools to our daily lives, we build our own “Lean house”. Thus, we are improving because we are continuously elaborating our standards and finding ways to sustain them.
