When it comes to Lean, there are numerous types of event techniques used.  
The two used by the City of Manitowoc are:

  1. Rapid Improvement Events are 2-4 hours in length and focus on making rapid changes to improve a process.
  2. Value Stream Mapping (VSM) Events are structured, multiple-day events, led by a facilitator in which a team of participants map out the entire chain of processes in detail from beginning to end.
