“Leading a Lean Transformation”

Saturday 13 June, EEDE premises

Master Class: “Leading a Lean Transformation”

Audience: Business leaders and quality managers who are either considering implementation of a lean improvement program or who are presently conducting a lean improvement program.

Description:

This one-day seminar  provides the executive content for transforming an organizational culture into a lean organization that has decided upon a strategic intent to integrate the lean methods and tools into its operating philosophy and daily practices as its desired approach to achieve an efficient organization that is effective, and economically managed to achieve its profitability goals.  Organizations may seek to develop two distinct types of efficiency: first, ‘little e efficiency, which works on improving the special causes of work process variation to optimize throughput in routine operational tasks and second, ‘Big E’ efficiency, which is focused on increasing organizational capability in business cross-functional business processes that deliver effectiveness and economic benefit [profitable growth and increased market share]. 

Many lean programs seek to eliminate “muda” waste – the waste that is evident in the workplace.  In this Master Class you will discover the other types of waste that must be addressed by management in order to stimulate an effective, organization-wide lean improvement: the “muri” and “mura” wastes that may be imposed by management.  When these wastes are initiated by management, then it Is not possible for workers to eliminate the muda waste, no matter how many tools or methods they apply!  In this seminar participants will discover how executive-driven waste can be addressed by the actions of the management team.

This seminar informs business leaders about what to expect and provides suggestions on how to lead an organization through the lean transformation, with special emphasis on role model leadership behavior that will signal that management is not merely “talking the walk,” but is capable of also taking action to “walk the talk.”
