February 14-16 & 21-23
Each session will run from 9:00-11:00 a.m.
In our Lean Leader Virtual Workshop, we’ll cover the relationships between organizational leadership, culture, and Lean tools. By exploring these relationships, and practicing the skills shared each day, leaders and their organizations will be able improve daily work by making it easier, faster, and better.
The workshop will emphasize how to identify and prioritize gaps in performance to collectively improve. Ultimately, the sustainability of any organization’s continuous improvement effort must be more than tools in search of problems. It must be ingrained into the way we think and behave every day.
Participants will gain skills to lead continuous improvement with more confidence and understanding. Organizations who believe employees are their most precious asset know the importance of making a commitment to training and development. This combination of commitment and training leads to a true problem-solving culture.
