Facilitators:  Dr. Eric Olsen - Director Central Coast Lean and Lori Serna - Cal Poly Business Transformation Office

Purpose: Serves as a capstone to the Central Coast Lean Leadership Workshop Series. It covers the fundamentals of how good leadership applies in a lean transformation.

Approach: This integrates key elements of previous workshops in this series and allows participants to work through leadership challenges relevant to their own organizations. The Toyota Kata and change management are covered as key elements in building a leadership style. The Toyota Kata provides participants with a scientific method-based improvement and coaching approach that can provide any organization with new paths to discovery and higher performance. Change management is a fundamental capability that every manager should have in their lean tool kit. In this workshop we explore the ADKAR Model and how you can use it to make impactful change in your organization.

​Target Audience: All managers, team leads, and supervisors who are charged with implementing lean in their organizations. Pervious participation in the 7 Habits workshop and at least one other workshop in the series is preferred.
