The practical part will present a case study for a successful lean transformation in a consultancy firm showing the challenges faced and the steps for a successful implementation on office activities and on projects as well based on a company’s experience and observations reducing wastes and adding value to the work process within the organization to achieve the three parts goal of better, cheaper and faster projects.
