Introduction to Lean Leadership - Tuesday 24th May

Lean is often associated with the application of improvement tools to eliminate waste within a process by a few subject matter experts.  This approach can deliver some incremental gains, but often it is not sustained and does not create a real step change in business performance.

The role of leadership is key to maximising the benefits of applying and sustaining Lean to help solve business problems. The Lean Enterprise Academy and the wider network of Lean Institutes around the world (the Lean Global Network) has been engaged in researching and codifying the key characteristics leaders need to achieve this.
