Lean leadership

Become a true Leader who is able to create the space to develop the autonomy of your employees to improve their own processes so that they are intrinsically motivated to meet the challenges of their daily practice.
The role of the practical leader in employee development

We develop leaders at all levels of the organization to properly fulfill their role as process owners and to set a safe environment for improvement.

We explain the purpose of their regular presence in a place where value is added. We teach them how to respond properly to the results and actions of their teams and how to be role models of desirable behavior. Together, we agree on basic routines for improving production and administrative processes and learning from new experiences.

We will teach leaders how to assign challenging tasks aimed at meeting the company’s goals as defined in the company’s development plan (Hoshin Kanri). How to visualize results transparently to give employees meaning and feedback of actual performance and motivation to respond in a timely manner. To collaborate and teach employees a systematic scientific approach to process improvement.

We show the way to actively engage all employees and truly develop them in problem solving and finding new opportunities in process improvement. The goal is to create a strong corporate infrastructure of a “learning” organization and a corporate capacity for all process improvement and effective problem solving.

The Lean leader is able to effectively lead and communicate with expert improvement teams that implement Lean performance principles. Providing them with resources, calibrating the process, and overall creating the space for their projects to be successful.
