Lean Management System

Presented By:

Brian Maskell

Session Abstract:

Lean Management is an amorphous phrase.  What does it really mean?  Is it a set of executive tools?  Is it a way of working with people?  Is it a different way of spending your time on the job?  Is it a philosophy of management?  Or is it just another way to squeeze you harder to make the company more money?

IN this short presentation I want to show you a well thought-out diagram of all the important elements of a Lean Management System, how they fit together, and how they enable you to harness the principles of lean into practical changes in you business.

I am NOT saying that developing Lean Management is east, but this Lean Management framework will help you to develop a realistic change plan incorporating all the key issues, tools, methods and thinking needed for a truly lean organization.  You will also receive a “Lean Management Diagnostic Questionnaire” that you can use to measure your current situation and track your progress.

Learning Objectives:

“In this session you will learn…”

  • The scope of lean management as it applies in your organization
  • How to approach the development of integrated lean
  • Communicating the vision for real lean instead of “fake lean”
  • A useful diagnostic tool to measure your current status and track your improvement
