Small Business Workshop

The Greater Hall Chamber’s Small Business Council and Brenau University present “Lean Principles for Small Business” on Tuesday, January 26 from 8:30-11:30 a.m. at Brenau University (Jacobs Building, 340 Green Street in Gainesville).

Sponsored by Small Business Access Partners and facilitated by Brenau’s Dr. James Taylor, this workshop will cover ways to apply principles of continuous improvement to small business. Dr. Taylor will draw from such topics as Lean (based upon the Toyota Production System), Six Sigma, Quality and simple business analytics. Participants will gain knowledge that will help them improve their management approach, and more importantly, leave with some very specific actions in mind.

“You are never too small for these principles,” said Chamber Vice Chair of Membership Tony Paramore, Gainesville Paint.  “Even a one-person business can benefit.  It is actually better to implement the principles when you are small than to wait until you are large and then try to change the culture.”

Professor James Taylor is a 30 year veteran of the automotive industry. His fields of experience have included design engineering, sales, project management, quality and continuous improvement fields. He has been at Brenau since 2007 and is Assistant Professor of Management.

Cost: $15 Chamber Members; $30 Non-Members; Includes Light Breakfast.
