PASADENA, Calif. -- Lean guru, Brad Cairns, returns to the Cabinets & Closets Conference & Exposition on March 27, 2018, with an all-day track devoted to lean, titled "Total Lean Immersion." Cairns delivered his presentation, "Kick-Ass Lean: What the heck is this LEAN thing everyone is talking about?" at CCCE 2017 in front of a packed audience in Schaumburg, IL.
As the principal of the Center for Lean Learning, Cairns also heads the Best Damn Doors, in St. Thomas, Ontario. "A passion for Lean Manufacturing had led me near and far helping companies break the traditional barriers and create a Lean learning culture," says Cairns, who notes that "'Lean" is not simply a toolkit that can be applied, with predictable results to follow. "Yes, there are many tools and techniques for Lean, but just as important as the tools are management support, employee buy-in, and education," said Cairns.
