Overview of Our Lean Learning Events

HOW TO DEVELOP NEW METRICS IN A LEAN CULTURE

Many traditional performance metrics are obsolete in a lean enterprise, relying on flow technology, flexible and integrated systems, shared management, and information at the point of use. This seminar not only teaches you the science of developing lean metrics that deal with the cultural change in an organization, but you will learn how to ask the right questions, and determine what information and measures are needed to support the lean triad: supply chain, people/processes, and the customer.

HUMAN ERROR REDUCTION: ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS

This seminar explains the underlying reasons why humans make errors and how you can prevent these errors. As professionals, we have the opportunity to observe our work environment so human errors do not occur. We have the ability to create effective policies for managing human reliability, thus decreasing the risk of human error in our workplace. Research has shown that about 76% of workers` human errors occur in the groups that have not been introduced to human error reduction. More than 7,000 professionals have benefited from taking this seminar.

The Toyota Company and the Toyota Production System were founded and operate today from a total systems view of the organization. The total systems view creates the culture - the day to day way the people work, solve problems, create success and continuously sustain and improve their daily tasks. All the parts of the organization are interrelated. There are no silo work groups.

Lean Employee Involvement

Most organizations embarking on a lean journey soon become frustrated with improvement events and isolated projects that yield great short-term results but have no sustainability and no major innovation. They are searching for something more: the culture that goes beyond “just managing” continuous improvement. Success in today’s world of constant change requires leadership to leverage all employees in increasing value to their customer. Learn how Toyota uses standardization, problem solving, suggestions systems, quality circles and daily management in order to get 100% of your employees making improvement and solving problems on a daily basis and as a result, outdistance your competition.
