Sherwin-Williams Schedules Special EcoLean Workshop

Sherwin-Williams Schedules Special EcoLean Workshop This June In Cleveland

Workshop designed to specifically improve quality, production output and profitability.

Sherwin-Williams introduced its EcoLean series of lean workshops more than five years ago and since then, each one has been sold out. The brand anticipates that tradition to continue as it announces its next EcoLean Level 1 workshop, June 16-17, 2015, in Cleveland, Ohio, at the landmark Renaissance Cleveland Hotel.

The Cleveland workshop will also take part offsite at Cleveland-based LeanDog, one of the country’s premier software development companies. There, attendees will have a chance to tour LeanDog’s unique headquarters and see first-hand how an organization can embrace lean principals to greatly assist in its workflow, communication and increased productivity.

“Our goal is for our attendees to leave the two-day event inspired, confident and armed with the necessary tools to immediately increase the quality and production output of their businesses,” says Greg Eisenhardt, Sherwin-Williams A-Plus NetworkMarketing manager. “In this Cleveland session, shop owners and managers will be able to see a little bit of a different working culture – but we think they’ll be able to take back a lot of the positives and introduce some methods back to their own collision centers.”

The exclusive EcoLean Level 1 workshop and program from Sherwin-Williams are offered to collision center owners and dealer managers from across the United States and Canada. They are designed to educate attendees about how to maximize profitability by improving production and eliminating waste throughout their facilities.

In addition to the LeanDog facility tour, the upcoming Cleveland EcoLean Level 1 workshop curriculum will include a variety of discussions on lean principles and how they can drive quality. Other specific workshop topics include:

  • Improving Workshop Efficiency – The history of Lean Production, and its practical application in collision repair
  • The Principles of 5S – Methods of making your facility more efficient and consistent
  • Overcoming Lean Implementation Challenges – Roundtable discussion with Sherwin-Williams business consultants
