The LCI-UK Summit 2018 “Lean Productivity – From Design to Delivery” – Thursday 1st November 2018.

Bourton Group LLP has for many years supported the LCI-UK with their annual summit, and this year we have expanded our involvement following the appointment of Bourton Group Senior Partner Rob Walley to the board of LCI-UK.

In addition to leading a team of Bourton Group Lean experts from our consulting team, running events at both summit and training day, Rob will be filling the role of Master of Ceremonies at both Summit Dinner and throughout the Summit itself.

On the Summit day, Bourton Group will be facilitating a small group session based on ‘Improving incident clearance using a Lean Approach’

This will focus on the work of Highways England Traffic Officers in the South East who have been using a Lean based approach to improve the clearance rates of traffic incidents and resulting congestion on their local motorway network. This despite increases in demand of up to 300% in some parts of the network and an environment of zero increase in Traffic Officer capacity.

A classic Lean example of getting more from the same!
