Review BestPractice Day 2011 „Creating new Values“

Companies slip behind if they fail to engage in continuous development. Against this background, and following on from the successful conference in 2009, our "BestPractice Day 2011" is entirely dedicated to continuous improvement along the value chain. The event, led by Professor Eberhard Abele of the TU (Technical University) Darmstadt, offers intensive knowledge transfer in the area of lean management and streamlined processes.

Learn from the lean experts and Toyota specialists Dr. Jeffrey Liker and Mike Rother, appearing together in Europe for the first time. Listen to presentations by successful practitioners, who will demonstrate actual applications, benchmark exemplars, and the transfer potential of some excellent processes. Meet other colleagues in a stimulating atmosphere for an intensive exchange of ideas and experiences.
