Executive Leadership for Lean

Executive Leadership For Lean Manufacturing

Paradigms, Culture, Style and Character For Radical Business Change

Lean manufacturing is a pioneer's journey-- The destination is vague; the path unmarked; and hazards lurk along the way.  The Wagon-Master is a metaphor for Lean Manufacturing leadership.  He prepared his charges as best he could, knowing that unexpected events would occur; that they might blaze new trails; that a native guide is invaluable. By force of personality, The Wagon-Master energized when terrain seemed impassable; directed when trails were obscure; encouraged when some faltered; gave hope when hope seemed forlorn. 

This seminar explores leadership issues in the context of Lean Transformations and other situations where radical change in behavior and culture is necessary. While it is intended for top executives, the program is beneficial to anyone in a leadership position. It is full of exercises, examples and videos.
