Lean Leadership is a 3-day workshop designed to help leaders:
While the workshop is particularly relevant for those involved in leading Lean transformations it is practical for anyone who is looking to enhance their leadership skills with advanced tools and techniques drawn from the field of Lean Enterprise.
For those new to Lean, the workshop includes an introduction to the fundamentals of the Lean improvement approach emphasizing the role of a leader at each stage of implementation followed by an exploration of what Lean leaders do differently to create efficiency and effectiveness, measure performance and empower people for better results. The last day of the course focuses on execution, demonstrating Lean behaviours and actions that leaders can implement immediately (via the Lean Leadership Planning Workbook) to improve personal and team performance. Finally, participants review their work calendars and apply Lean principles to free up +/- 10 hours per week to create space for these new behaviours and other high-value-added activities.
