The principles of the lean management system are neither complex nor difficult to understand, yet many efforts at transformation have great starts but end badly. Why? The answer lies in our own personal behavior as leaders. When we expect everyone around us to adopt lean behaviors, but we ourselves fail to, we subvert all of the good work happening within the organization. This session will focus on the most important elements of the lean management system, the daily huddle. Participants will be presented with multiple video case studies of leaders in the workplace. We will view, analyze and make recommendations for improvements.
Peg Pennington, a highly sought-after speaker and thought leader in the world of Lean Six Sigma will chair this workshop. Prior to driving the daily operations in her current role as president at MoreSteam, Peg spent 18 years at The Ohio State University, including 16 years as the Executive Director at the Center for Operational Excellence.
Strictly limited availability: In order to ensure that everyone can contribute effectively, this session will belimited to a maximum of 20 participants.
