Creating a Kaizen Culture: Lean Leadership Hands On Workshop
MSI Mold Builders - 12300 6th Street SW Cedar Rapids, IA 52404
Transforming a culture is far more about emotional growth than technical maturity. Co-written by Mike Wroblewski, Creating a Kaizen Culture explains how to enable an adaptive and sustainable organization by leveraging core kaizen values and the behaviors they generate. The workshop will provide a “teach-do” training methodology that is very interactive and that is tied closely to the study and immediate application of the Lean principles learned. The clearest demonstration of participant understanding is through the successful application of the principles and the results achieved.
This workshop will focus on the role of a lean leader:
- What kaizen culture is and why we need it
- How everyone, everywhere can practice kaizen everyday using kaizen eyes
- The leader’s role in turning kaizen culture into a competitive advantage
- Using Leader Standard Work, Gemba Walks and lean coaching to develop your people
Upon completion of this session, participants will learn…
- Creating a Kaizen Culture will help bring awareness to the impact of culture on organizations path of continuous improvement.
- Leaders will better understand culture on a deeper level, more importantly a kaizen culture and how their daily behaviors and thinking impact their culture.
- To become more effective on a Gemba Walk
- How to use Leaders Standard Work
- To be a better Lean Coach and Mentor
Our intent is that lean leaders will improve their leadership skills to personally grow their own knowledge and improve daily behaviors focused on daily kaizen and developing others as a central theme to their daily management system.
