Lean for Executives Workshops

1-day Introduction to Lean for Government for Management

This 1-day training workshop is designed for Senior and Mid-management and provides an overview of Lean, a collaborative scientific approach for continuous improvement, as it applies to government. Through engaging simulations participants learn about and experience the Lean values, the four scientific components of Lean as the science of work and some improvement tools. Participants also gain an overview of Lean for Executives with key Lean leadership principles and roles and responsibilities with new daily practices for management in a Lean organization. This 1-day introduction is a prerequisite for all other training workshops. When striving to become a Lean organization, management must embrace a paradigm shift where work and improvement are one and the same – to engage in work is to engage in improvement with a goal to flow more and more value to clients every single day.

Lean is the science of work: see work (by using visual tools/management to see flow and what disrupts flow of value to clients such as maps or ‘kanban’, because in science you can’t measure what you can’t see), measure work (the simplest and most widely used measures are time and quality) and improve work every day (by collaboratively optimizing the flow of value to clients to make flow faster, easier and cheaper).
