Presented by Jeff Hastie, Global Director, Lean Enterprise, Bose Corporation / David Margil, Lean Enterprise Leader, Corporate Information Services, Bose Corporation
Jeff & David will describe how they engaged with IT leadership at Bose—who were initially reluctant—to inspire them to begin and then sustain a culture of continuous improvement. Hear from Jeff & David on:
Engaging with leadership and engineering the “ask” – how to get leaders to move from no to yes
Laying out the roadmap – making sure leadership knows how to get started
Creating a culture, not a program – going slow to go fast
Focus areas to create a strong foundation – critical success factors
Roadblocks and speedbumps – when the journey doesn’t go as planned
Where are we now, where are we going? – the value of persistence
