Flick the Switch Book Launch
On June 9, 2017, AME WA hosted Chris Warner for the launch of his book ‘Flick The Switch.’ The book is a first of its kind. Very little has been written about how the Lean methodology is being applied within the mining industry. It was for this exact reason that Chris put pen to paper. Chris has documented his experiences over the past 10-years teaching and deploying Lean thinking within the beautiful, rugged landscaped of North Western Australia.
Chris presentation was very welll received by all who attended. He shared his journey transitioning from high precision Lean manufacturing to bulk commodity mining. He will be providing insights into many of his in-field observations. This will include the five principles he believes are essential to progressing the mining industry from good to great.
Feedback from the night:
Chris's presentation was inspiring, thought-provoking and real. Attendees were friendly and welcoming with a good gender mix. KPMG provided a great space with a wonderful view.
What I found most valuable was hearing Chris' story and how the book came to being and networking opportunity.
Chris Warner was excellent and was very frank and open which was very well received by all in attendance. Thanks to the AME WA Committee for making the evening a great success.
