The overall success of a Lean transformation depends on leadership, especially front-line supervision. Supervisors are the critical links between management and the people in the workplace. They are in a key position to lead and create motivation. And, most importantly, the supervisors are expected to change the current culture into a culture of continuous improvement.
However, despite these management expectations, most organizations give supervisors limited attention. Supervisors often manage more people than anyone in the company. Yet receive the least amount of training. And, it’s not enough to just include supervisors in training. The Lean training has to be designed specifically for the supervisors.
This one-day workshop focuses on the fundamental challenges the you as a supervisor face in leading a Lean culture change. From a supervisor perspective, you will learn how to use practical Lean tools and techniques in enough detail that you can begin immediately to apply them in your everyday work. Also included is an overview of the “softer skills” needed to create and sustain successful change.
