In Lean conversations, we often hear “it’s 10% tools and 90% people,” “we need to change the culture,” and “they just don’t get it.” While each of these statements may be true, they all reflect that something is missing in our problem-solving and transformation attempts—and that missing element is helping people change their behaviors. In reality if we don’t change the way the organization thinks and behaves, on a day-to-day basis, we won’t significantly impact performance levels.
This workshop includes both theory and practical application around the behaviors of excellence: organizational clarity, focus, discipline, and widespread employee engagement. Activities include class discussions and four major activities representing each of the dimensions.
The clarity activity centers on the words we use and how ambiguity and "softened" language hinders performance. The focus activity is a timed simulation that demonstrates how working on fewer projects at a time increases the total number of projects completed in a comparable given time period. Participants learn metrics-based process mapping, a highly disciplined process for standardizing work. In the final activity, participants practice techniques that lead to engagement and disengagement.
