Lean Masterclass

An 8-part lecture series giving a sound introduction to the practical concepts of applied lean.

The EU-Japan Centre Lean Masterclass consisted of lectures, by Professor Richard Keegan, focussing on "Getting things done". The series was recorded in front of an audience consisting largely of former participants in the Centre's WCM and Lean in Europe activities. As well as being the Advisor to the EU-Japan Centre's WCM and Lean in Europe activities, Richard is also the Manager of the Competitiveness Department at Enterprise Ireland and an adjunct assistant Professor at the Trinity College Dublin Business School where the series was filmed on 23 & 24 May 2016.
