Perfect leadership routines workshop

About the workshop:

This one-day workshop explores the process of developing a lean management system. Dave Brunt, LEA’s CEO, will guide participants through the fundamental questions to ask when developing your lean journey. The questions are contained in “The Lean Transformation Framework” (LTF). Having discussed the high level LTF questions we will drill down to identify the “Behaviours and Management System” required to ensure lean thinking and practice develops throughout an organisation. This includes the defining the management system for performance and the management system for improvement and the core skills, routines and behaviours required.

Key learnings from the day:

  • Introduction to the Lean transformation Framework
  • Why we use a teach poster to convey the subject matter
  • Developing a Management System for Performance
  • Developing a Management System for Improvement
  • Defining the Core Skills and Behaviours required to lead the change

The workshop is for anyone responsible for leading in an organization – organization, site, department or team level. The workshop is also for anyone with responsibility for leading lean.
