Jim Huntzinger & Bill Waddell
What is a Lean Economy? How does the Lean Enterprise impact the economy? These ideas and practices will be discussed in this special session with Bill Waddell and Jim Huntzinger. One of the critical developments over the next decade for the lean community, and specifically the lean accounting and management communities, will be understanding how people and process bring about prosperity. The Lean Economy can and will be the major driver to link the Micro system (lean business model) and Macro system (economic model). Join Bill and Jim for this insightful and interactive session of discussion and questions.
