LEAN training praised for helping companies get edge in tough times...
By Mitch Talley Whitfield County Director of Communications
“What if we ... ?”
Those three little words have turned into a battle cry for Expert Die, a Whitfield County company
inspired by five weeks of special training led by Bob Helms of Georgia Northwestern Technical College.
All 25 of the company’s employees completed the Common Sense LEAN training, which was held on a series of Fridays in October and November at Expert Die’s Cavender Road facility.
“Bob says he calls it Common Sense because the class really is just common sense things to do,” Expert Die co-owner Dawn Barr said, “things like being organized, owning your position, figuring out new ways and ideas of doing your job more efficiently and more effectively, not wasting time hunting for things.”
Barr says the LEAN training — which for years has helped huge corporations like Motorola, Toyota and General Electric save billions of dollars and increase quality — is something she and her husband, Eric, have wanted to take for years but never had time for.
