Précis of Stephen’s short presentation: Living Lean – the importance of top-down bottom-up training
“Many companies have trodden the path of embedding continuous improvement in their organisations by building Lean into the corporate mind-set. Many companies have also failed.
In this short session, the lessons of what NOT to do will be balanced with the lessons of good practice for a successful outcome. Notably, it is more than doing lean– it is about living lean. In other words, it is as much about behaviours and habits as it is about tools and techniques and the training needs to reflect this.
The whole organisation has to be engaged – top-down (strategic thinking, planning, role-modelling) and bottom-up (empowered, self-managing, involved).”
