BestPractice Day 2009 „Bad Times Require Good Companies“


Companies lose their way if they don’t continue to develop all the time. Against this background, and after the last successful event which was attended by more than 200 decision-makers, the BestPractice Day 2009 is to be characterised by continual improvement and excellent processes all along the value added chain. Experts will present examples of BestPractice from the areas of development, production and lean management as well as relating experiences that they have gained along the route to becoming a lean enterprise.

Experience the Toyota expert and multiple bestseller author Dr. Jeffrey K. Liker at his first public appearance in Germany.
