Lean Systems Deployment Support
In a coaching scheme, systems are deployed by the managerial team, while being assessed and given feedback by the consulting team, but direct responsibility falls on the company’s managerial team responsible for the deployment of Lean. The consulting team will provide general guidance and the means to develop Lean tools by the internal team.
Daily Management System
This system must be leaded by top leadership, and is the foundation to sustain the improvement momentum to develop a true continuous and learning culture
Standard work system
This must be developed to achieve a repetitive and predictable way of work, the real value for standard work is to bring problems to surface and address causes of deviation
Key Indicators Driving the Desired Behaviors
A correct KPI deployment must be clear and simple, trough the vertical and horizontal layers of the organization, the way people get measured will drive their behavior. Good measures should be implemented in order to drive the desired behaviors
Leaders Coaching & Development
It’s essential to begin with leaders that clearly understand the vital role as coaches and facilitators, it’s of much importance to have personal development before being able to develop others, making leaders which live by the companies values, aligned to operational excellence. The first leader development in Lean Management must be at a directive level since they will be the ones that create a culture within the organization by means of the systems and behaviors established.
