Joe Murli, Author & Lean Leadership Thought Leader
The workshop takes place online.
The workshop gives a solid and reliable understanding of a complete management system in which you can better evaluate and benchmark your own organization. You will learn the elements that comprise the Lean Management System as well as how the elements work together to create a system of continuous improvement through collaborative problem solving.
Lean organizations depend on developing the problem-solving capabilities of the entire workforce while allocating specific categories of problems to each layer of the organization. While there is still a need for expertise in specialty departments, the emphasis here is on the performance of the entire value stream and the customer it serves. Leadership in this type of organization is less focused on being the problem solver and more focused on building the problem-solving muscle of the workforce. While traditional organizations delegate problem solving within 10-20% of the workforce, Lean organizations endeavor to have the entire organization actively engaged in problem solving.
The course is structured as repetitive cycles of Learn-See-Do. First, we will teach a principle, then you will see how this principle is put into practice in three sectors; manufacturing, office & services, and healthcare.
We will repeat these Learn-See-Do cycles until each element is covered and then examine how the pieces work together to support a problem-solving culture typical of a mature Lean organization.
Basic understanding of Lean.
