Session Abstract:

This session will explore the People Systems element of The Lean Management System.

While process improvements and leader standard work can yield great benefit on their own; truly significant, sustainable, breakthrough improvements are made when we align our people systems with the behaviors we expect of the workforce.  Without this alignment, it is fraught with potential pitfalls and ambiguity.  However, when we employ a structured approach that aligns our people systems and the expected behaviors, we are able to create the ideal work environment in a practical, safe, and predictable manner.

This session will take you through exercises that provide hands on learning about the policies, practices, and systems that motivate people to think on behalf of the company. A unique characteristic of Lean is the capture of the hearts and minds of the organization to have everyone every day think about how to carry out their work more effectively, aligning people systems to this goal is a requirement for success.

This course will walk participants through the employee life cycle starting from the time a person is attracted to join the organization until they disengage, and all stages in between. Each of these stages contains critical milestone events that have a large impact on the expectations of the individual as well as their perceptions of the organization’s expectations of them. Participants will learn to identify and close gaps between the current state and the desired future state, as well as strategies for effectively closing those gaps. Exercises are included to relate the materials to your own organization and potential opportunities to affect improvement.    

At the end of this workshop, you will be knowledgeable in:

  • The characteristics of Lean organizations
  • Impacts to the organizational structure
  • The most critical components of People Systems that affect targeted lean behaviors
  • The competencies required in a Lean thinking organization, how they can best be integrated into the Lean transformation process and managed long-term
  • Subordinate development methods consistent with Lean leadership behaviors
  • The phases of the employee life cycle and how to observe “markers” that drive Lean thinking behaviors
  • Draw practical connections among the 6 elements of the Lean Management System inherent in a functioning lean thinking organization
  • Learn how to identify and close gaps specific to People Systems and strategies for a successful lean transformation
  • Change management implications, roles, and responsibilities
