- to demonstrate to participants that only by enhancing the added-value generated in core business processes and eliminating any form of waste inherent in those processes can and should the enterprise's overall Performance improve.
- to illustrate participants practical methods to rank and prioritise areas to be improved, in order to generate and maintain an adequate level of improvement momentum which could otherwise be lost.
