Richard Kelly, Managing Director of EMS Cognito will deliver the 1/2 day workshop aimed at challenging business leaders and continuous improvement managers to focus more on the culture and behaviours required for a Lean Transformation than on the Lean Techniques themselves.
Introduction & Background
Lean tools provide systematic methods for improving manufacturing effectiveness. Small changes made consistently have big effects. Lean is about changing behaviours and actions on a daily basis.
Organisations don't just change because of new systems, processes or new organisation structures. Before you embark on a change exercise you may want to find out to what extent the people in your organisation are ready for it. After all, they are the ones who need to understand the reasons behind your change effort so that they can embrace your ideas and implement them.
Excellence in each of these following areas will have a profound effect on your ability to benefit fully from the changes you are planning. We offer workshop in the following as well as development coaching for individuals.
Organisations that do well in implementing changes to operational practice already adapt their structure and role definitions to suit changing circumstances in the way they run their businesses. They have a clearly understood and shared way of thinking about their organisation and have usually eradicated any vestiges of a ‘blame culture’ favouring, instead, a culture of continual growth and learning.
Organisations that are successful at change pay great attention to the level of performance of their teams. They do not assume that teamwork is a natural thing, they work at it. They continually review and develop team performance and they promote self-directed autonomy in teams.
Objectives of the ½-Day Culture Change Workshop
To challenge business leaders and continuous improvement managers to focus more on the culture and behaviours required for a Lean Transformation than on the Lean Techniques themselves
To create an awareness of the need to develop change-readiness within an organisation before embarking on change
Benefits of attending the ½-Day Culture Change Workshop
Every year in the UK, millions of pounds is wasted on Lean consultancy in organisations that are simply not ready for change. This, sheep-dip approach, merely touches the surface of an organisation without creating the necessary strong cultural foundations which allow Lean processes to become a way of life.
By being aware of the need for change-readiness within an organisation and how to nurture it, strategic leaders can deliver a Lean Transformation which delivers results based on adopting new behaviours and new ways of working which are deep rooted in the organisation’s culture.
This will be a participative and interactive workshop with a minimum reliance on PowerPoint focussing more on interactive discussion of the various Change-Readiness theories.
