Upcoming Webinar - "Leader Standard Work. What, when, for whom and why" – presented by David Mann
Webinar Date/Time: June 10th 11:30 AM MDT
Leader Standard Work is the essential element in a lean management system. It's the element in the system that closes the loop on process focus, and keeps it closed.
Process focus sustains lean applications and captures previously unrecognized problems - opportunities for extending leans gains and bringing continuous improvement to life.
Lean production and lean management form a lean ecosystem, which when healthy makes a better day at work for leaders and front line workers as well, by eliminating frustrating delays for workers and endless firefighting for leaders. The value proposition for leader standard work is that it sustains the gains from lean and the benefits to leaders and workers alike. That is, if you like the reduction in daily chaos and firefighting brought about by the new lean application, leader standard work is the critical element in sustaining it, and the better day at work the lean gains provide you.
In this webinar David details both the tactical and strategic (or executive) levels, of leader standard work. After watching this webinar you will have the basic concepts you need to implement leader standard work at your company.
