WATCH NOW: Lean Leadership - A Lean Organization Starts Here

In a world where lean, six sigma and other methods of process improvement are becoming more prevalent and mainstream, how do companies differentiate themselves?  

Why are some companies much more successful when they have the same strategies, technologies and processes?

It comes down to leadership.

Leadership creates the environment through behaviors and supporting mechanisms. A distinctive environment enables learning and improvement which in turn brings out the best in others.

Today, technology and strategies are constantly evolving, and accessibility and transparency is prevalent. The only constant is change, and its an organization's ability to adapt to change and constantly learn that is the true strategic differentiator.

It is for that reason that leadership is becoming increasingly important not just to create a lean organization, but to create a sustaining high performance culture.  

In this presentation, listen to how MassMutual has approached lean and culture, and its focus on leadership development.  

After all, lean without leadership is just a bunch of tools.
