Why this training

Lean has to be led from the top if it is to be sustained, and yet there is still a lot of confusion about what this means for leaders. This workshop will reflect on experiences to date and what it takes to turn learning at every level into business results. What do leaders need to learn and how can they build the capabilities for dynamic continuous improvement rather than optimization throughout the organization? The workshop will comprise a series of structured discussions defining current challenges and the next steps each leader can take.
