LEAN LEADERSHIP & TRANSFORMATION

The Leadership and Lean Transformation program has four core areas of focus that can be delivered individually, but are recommended together to achieve the greatest positive impact. Each focus area may include on-going coaching and support. The ongoing consulting and coaching for each area provides support for an organization in effort to sustain and grow the gains achieved during their Lean transformation process.

Focus 1: Executive Leadership Team Alignment and Coaching

  • Strategic Leadership: vision, mission, values review, tactical plan and monitoring, and accountability methods will be documented and employed.

  • Organization / Lean Management System development.

  • Leading Lean Sigma: leadership team building, organizational strategy and systems development, and planning to support a Lean Sigma transformation.

Focus 3: Grass Roots Level Lean Applications Training

Focus 4: Value Stream Mapping to High Impact Lean Sigma Improvement Projects

Provides the Lean practitioner with hands-on experience documenting and improving a variety of processes.
