Feedback from Past Attendees
"This workshop definitely helped me realize that every process we go through on a daily basis can be broken down to help showcase everyone’s tasks and how they affect the end goal. While we were discussing it all, I already started to think of waste that was going on during my day and how some of that could be eliminated."

Being able to visually see how making changes to different parts of a process can either make a positive or negative effect, and the degree of the effect was very cool. It was also fun and challenging at the same time, because everyone wanted to decrease our process time as much as possible but it took a lot of collaboration and creative thinking to achieve that. "
