ING invites AlumniOS – Lean in the Service Sector

Tuesday September 24, ING invited AlunniOS for an event about the application of Lean theory in the Service Sector.  After a formidable buffet, we were welcomed in an enthousiastic setting, in which the ING Black Belts gave AlumniOS alumni an insight in the application of Lean theory within ING. Following a short introduction, alumni were given a case to prepare in four sub groups.

Each group was supported by a Black Belt, the best two groups were selected to present their findings and after a winner was appointed, a nice drink formed the perfect ending of a well organised night.

AlumniOS would like to thank the ING Black Belts for their hospitality, enthousiastic support and an interactive, well organised case!
