    The conference schedule.

    Lean arrived in service organisations at a time when industrialisation (call centres and back-offices managed as production systems) was the rage. Taking some misguided ideas from manufacturing, lean interventions shared many false assumptions with the status quo. In short, 'lean' in service took the wrong path.
