Lean Senior Management briefing

BoardroomThis one or two day Lean awareness session provides a comprehensive overview of the concepts of Lean Management for Senior Managers, Executives and Boards to enable them to lead and support a Lean business transformation.

Our presenters include world renowned Lean thinkers, authors, educators, researchers and implementers, as well as industry experienced local and international educators and consultants.

This briefing allows leaders to consider the steps needed to build a lean roadmap, to understand the capability development and change requirements of a lean transformation and to see how to avoid the traps of creating illusory savings.  Learn why a systems view of the enterprise is critical to dramatically improve productivity and create capacity to increase an organisation's output.

Leaders will learn why lean is a change in approach and how costs are reduced by focussing on people and value adding and not cost cutting.
