  Business professionals interested in learning more about the “Lean” manufacturing process are invited to a new educational and networking opportunity initiated by the Professional Development Center at Portland State University. The first in Portland State’s “Spirit of Learning Workshops,” will feature Charles Saunders, who will present “The Lean Story: How to Simplify Business Practices and Improve Supply Chain Management.” Saunders will showcase the latest information from the upcoming fall session.

  Saunders is an expert in Lean Process Management. His most recent assignment was serving as Consultant for African Affairs and Strategic Partnerships for Dan Bernstine, former Portland State president. He holds a bachelors degree in humanities from Portland State and a master of management from Cambridge College. He is certified in Lean Administration and is also a Six Sigma Green Belt.

  Lean Process Improvement is the most comprehensive system for reducing cost and installing quality across an entire organization. Lean employs the concepts of process flow and Value Stream Mapping to ensure that all work is measurable. It is especially useful for professionals in business, government or nonprofit concentrated in manufacturing, health care, service, distribution or retail.

  Attendance is no charge and drinks and refreshments will be available. Professional Development staff and students will be on hand to answer questions about the Lean Certification Program.
