Leading Lean Improvement Teams

Just as the performance of sports teams owes much to the competence of the team coach, experience shows that delivering gains from Lean Manufacturing also a depends on the skills of the Lean coach.

Traditional lean training skips over the essential lean team leadership principles, techniques and underpinning processes to deliver lasting gains and outstanding performance. That can mean that despite having a good understanding of Lean techniques such as Visual Management, 5S or Value Stream Mapping, these powerful levers for improvement have a limited impact on bottom line results. They survive only through regular re launching of lean initiatives. The evidence of this are lean programmes that create pockets of improvement, visual management window dressing or 5S audits that fail to deliver a better way of working.

Two new training workshops for 2015 fill this gap to harness the potential of lean teams as a vehicle to deliver year on year improvement.

Lean Facilitator covers how to develop teams who need to transform the shop floor reality through front line teams. Over 3 days participants learn how to help teams to understand how to break out of the current state and engage in delivery of a proactive improvement culture.

Manufacturing Project Management covers the engagement of cross functional teams with sharing knowledge, engaging those impacted by the project to deliver lasting gains from projects such as new assets, IT systems or products and services.

As with all DAK courses this includes development of a practical 100 day plan to support the transfer of lessons learned to the workplace.
