The business enterprise has evolved dramatically over the past 100 years. Many claim that traditional accounting practices have not evolved and no longer support modern operations. This has most clearly been demonstrated in manufacturing, where manufacturers have moved from batch processing to single-piece flow processing, a result of applying lean principles. Modern operations – and “lean” operations specifically – have now taken root in most industries. Healthcare, service, construction, government, and countless other industries successfully apply lean concepts to eliminate waste and get more from fewer resources.
So why are accounting and operations at odds and how can you overcome this?
Find out on March 7th. See how three former CFOs became change agents and aligned accounting with lean operations. You’ll learn about the financial impact that resulted as they share lessons learned and provide practical recommendations to start your own lean accounting journey.
