Lean Cultural Transformation

4 hours or 8 hours Workshop

 Lean Conversion is very much about the human element and how employees contribute to your company.  A Lean culture works to harness the complete brainpower of the workforce to build a continuous improvement process.  Experts estimate that 70 percent of becoming a Lean enterprise is culture-related. Without employee support, you can’t make many, if any, changes in your organization. Even if you aren’t planning to implement Lean, making any sustainable changes can be an uphill battle without the right company culture.


Identifying problems in your business is easier than trying to fix them. You might have high employee turnover, caused in part by low morale. You’ve tried to fix these problems, but improvement projects go nowhere. Culture greatly influences many facets of daily productivity and improvement. The way employees work, their attitudes toward work and change, their relationships with each other and management and the way change is introduced, embraced, and tackled is defined by your culture.  All of which contribute greatly to your company’s health.


Course Description

The purpose of this seminar is to introduce all employees to the methods and techniques that manage cultural change. This course will address the impact that implementing Lean practices can have on people in the workplace and outlines methods you can use to establish a positive culture. These methods are used to eliminate cultural waste in the workforce and better align material, information, procedures, and process flow. Participants in the Lean Culture workshop will learn specific methods to develop leadership and employee involvement, along with techniques used to manage and preserve the gains created by Lean.  Changing the way your business runs is more than just moving machines — it means working with people too.
