Developing and Coaching a Team of Frontline Problem Solvers
You see the potential that continuous improvement can have to help your organization stay competitive and innovate in the changing print industry landscape. But you know you’re just scratching the surface. The truth is that none of those Lean tools “work” without employees making the magic happen. For CI to be effective, you need effective leadership. And leading in a Lean or CI environment is different than what most managers are taught or shown. In this workshop, you’ll discover why it’s so hard to get CI systems to stick and what you should do differently. You will learn and experience the 5 Cs to Develop a Team of Problem Solvers. This is a hand-on workshop, so come prepared to actively participate. Attendees will also walk away with training exercises and a model to develop other leaders. The workshop is appropriate for operations/production managers, CI/quality managers, and team leads—with or without direct reports—who want to leverage CI to improve their business.
