Lean for Executives: Strategic Planning Workshop


Lean Strategy is perhaps the most widely talked about – but often least understood – element of Lean principles.  Strategic planning events and brainstorming sessions are designed to provide a deeper level of understanding and appreciation for the elements of a successful Lean Strategy.  Facilitated by experienced, industry-backed coaches (with combined Toyota experience of over 20 years), you will learn proven VALUES methodology (Vision, Alignment, Leadership, Unity, Execution, Sustainment).  From developing a vision to extreme problem solving, we change the way that your organization can effectively strategize and deploy Lean.

In addition, executives will learn their critical role in the development and deployment of Lean in their organization.

WHY LEAN for executives?

Upon completion of this workshop, participants will:

  • Learn how to develop a Lean strategy and set relevant targets
  • Learn how to create a Lean implementation plan, including training and kaizen opportunities
  • Develop framework for ongoing measurement & review
