This 1.5-day online workshop hosted by CPA New Brunswick and delivered in partnership with Landmark Decisions and Barrington OPS covers the basics of Activity-Based Planning (ABP) and Lean and how they can be merged into a comprehensive approach for business modeling, resource management and process improvement following the DMAIC approach.
Through use of a case study (provided in advance of the workshop), participants will gain hands-on experience in using Lean and ABP concepts to build operational models that aid in the identification/elimination of waste. These models can also be used for “what-if” analysis to better forecast the anticipated cost savings and impact on profitability of proposed Lean changes in business processes and/or changes in resources or client demands.
A short case study will be provided to participants for review in advance of the workshop
Participants will receive a White-Belt Certification in Lean concepts
