Ensuring the work all colleagues do is aligned with what the vision and goals are for the company can often lead to substantial improvements year in and year out. In this presentation from the Business Transformation & Operational Excellence World Summit, we will also discuss with you what a Lean Transformation roadmap looks like and the roles of leaders throughout the deployment as well as what a training program for Lean Transformation looks like.
Someone decides to start a project only to find out it’s not really aligned with any improvements or goals on the Strategic Plan. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a system that aligns the goals on the strategic plan with department goals and then on down to front line staff actionable goals? I'll show examples of different types of metric boards that enable front line staff being engaged in daily problem solving. Apart of those examples will be the way metrics can be displayed that are relatable to what colleagues are doing and how to they can easily track them on a daily basis.
The critical piece we will discuss is how to document when those daily goals aren’t met and what actions you should take to ensure counter measures have been put in place to rectify whatever issue made the unit or department not hit their goal. You will get a chance to see examples of 5 why cause chains and how solving problems collectively can be fun and fulfilling.
With the Strategic roadmap, you will see a five year plan laid out and what key deliverables are recommended to be met each year in order to stay on track. We will discuss words like process owner, sensei, and executive champion.
For training, you will hear what the non-negotiables are for having a successful training program. Some of those include the engagement of Executive leadership, establishing goals for the program ahead of time and ensuring your pursuing a Lean Transformation for the right reason; culture change. We will dive into what kind of training interval works and how learn and apply is key to adult learning.
