Event description

Description

Tell me if this sounds familiar in your organization: constant firefighting, jumping to solutions, meeting after meeting with no results, competing priorities, unclear problem definition, and results that don't stick?

Problem solving has quickly emerged as one of the most critical skill sets for enabling a culture of kaizen (continuous improvement) in any business environment, function, or discipline. Learn a unique and proven problem solving methodology from a former Danaher Business System executive, Damon Baker, who led a transformation of Problem Solving Culture at Danaher. Damon is the Founder & Principal of Lean Focus, a consulting firm that partners with global clients from private equity and industry to accelerate value creation through the adoption of their Lean Focus Business Excellence Model.

Lean Focus is proud to offer a two-day course (September 25-26, 8am-5pm daily), where you will dive into a hands-on workshop and training with the ability to tackle your real problem that you will bring to the course. You will gain experience with the Lean Focus Problem Solving System form using your real problem and a case study. You will be able to network with others and leave prepared to tackle real business problems upon leaving this course. The 2-Day agenda covers the following:

  • Introduction to Problem-Solving
  • PLAN: Define the Problem / Analyze the Causes
  • DO: Improve the Process
  • CHECK: Standardize the Process
  • ACT: Sustain the Results
  • Building a Problem-Solving Culture

Skill development will be the focus for the 2 days, and you will learn AND apply many new and unique approaches to solving problems such as: developing your "burning platform", clearly and succintly defining your problem, breaking down your problem into its' largest causal contributors, utilizing a variety of methodologies like BOB/WOW, Brown Paper Analysis, Value Stream Mapping, Paretos, Histograms, Check Sheets, Run Charts, MECE method, and many more...You WILL leave the class with new skillsets to solve problems in your organization.

Pre-work will be required - you will need to read the book "Managing to Learn: Using the A3 Management Process" by John Shook (included in course tuition and will be mailed to you following course registration) and be asked to bring in a "LIVE" problem of your own to work on during the class. Please review the confirmation e-mail from Lean Focus for additional instructions.
