Most companies embarking on a lean journey soon become frustrated with improvement events and isolated projects that yield great short-term results but have no sustainability and no major innovation. They are searching for something more: the culture that goes beyond "just managing" continuous improvement. Success in today's world of constant change and chaos requires leadership to leverage this uncertainty. It does no good to improve your path if you need to actually change the path you're on.
In this program Mike Hoseus will address the top factors that will take you "Beyond Lean" and out of the Improvement Trap
- Going beyond “Lean Tools" to align the entire organization
- Creating, Implementing and Measuring key performance metrics and targets in the areas of Safety, Quality, Delivery and Cost (SQDC) as well as the standard work which evaluates each along with audit strategies
- Connect operations and all functions across the organization
- Identify and Coach Improvement (small steps) and Innovation (large leaps) focused on Value to the Customer
- What Plan-Do-Check-Adjust looks like at each management level and what processes are required to support it
Set the “framework” for:
- Lean Leadership System
- Lean Management System
- Lean Development System
- Lean Work Systems
