    We asked the Lean community to provide their stories. Each organisation will share what they have been doing and will reflect on their lessons learned.


    Zehnder

    Zehnder is a worldwide provider of solutions to deliver the best indoor climate, with 14 production sites in Europe, China and North America.

    Under the slogan Zmile, Zehnder has been working with lean methodologies for the past 4 years to make customers & employees smile.

    This session explains the Zmile journey, with a focus on the learning experience. Initially the initiative was launched in production under the name Kaizen and used an external consultant to “train the trainers”. The journey has been more like navigating a mountain pass than a smooth ascent. The simultaneous implementation of SAP; diverse national cultures; profit warnings and general resistance to change, have caused the odd rock fall. But the solid support of Group management, innovative use of simulations and a chance meeting on an aeroplane have kept the push for the summit going.

    Lean administration, Agility and Quick Response Manufacturing have now become part of our journey. The session gives participants a chance to experience the Zmile spirit and learn from an International Group’s successes and failures.


    Performance Solutions by Milliken / Milliken European Airbag Products (Milliken Industrials Limited)

    Milliken & Company is a global Textile and Chemical manufacturer and provides Performance System Excellence support to organisations through its Performance Solutions by Milliken consultancy business based on the Milliken Performance System. This session will provide an insight into the journey of the Milliken European Airbag Products business’s Wellington Plant, based in Bury, Greater Manchester, which manufacturer’s fabric for the European Airbag market. Through Learning Lean, Lean Learning the operation has truly engaged with all of its associates through practical teaching of the spirit of lean and hands-on lean tools and techniques. This enables associates at all levels within the organisation to play key roles in achieving the strategic aims of the business through daily incremental improvements. Highlights of the session include Lean Purposeful Play (Learning Lean), Bronze through to Gold (Lean Learning), coaching & mentoring and standard work for leaders. This session will offer the attendees the opportunity to discuss the journey with Ian Gabrielides, Advanced Practitioner with Performance Solutions by Milliken and Brian Stott and Colin Hampson who are Lean Champions at the Milliken European Airbag Products business.

    Created in 2013, Spark is the BBC's in-house Lean transformation team. Spark brings resources, skills and ideas to help other parts of the BBC think differently about the way they work and change it for the better. We’ve worked with teams all over the BBC – including Blue Peter, Songs of Praise, Radio 1, BBC regional news and the Today programme. Spark projects quickly lead to changes which have tangible results, making a real difference for audiences.  

    In 2015, a three day ‘Lean for Leaders’ course was launched to create a network of champions and embed a culture of change across the BBC. Over 200 members of staff have attended to date and demand has led to the development of online ‘Lean Awareness’ training modules.

    Today’s session will take you on BBC Spark’s journey – from introducing teams to Lean, a term not widely known and often met with confusion or distrust in creative environments, to making the tools and theory relevant to content makers.

    The start of the session will see Dan Jones summarise the different things he’s seen in the Lean/IT space - the Lean Startup, Agile, Dev Ops, LeanUX etc. This will introduce the session and be about his observations on what is going on with Lean and IT. We are aware that there are lots of flavours to improvement in the IT space. 

    Next up, AutoTrader will run a highly interaction session where participants take a customer problem then build and test a solution. At the end of the session participants will experience how instead of sitting around a table talking about a problem, using design thinking can unlock potential at speed. This will help you to understand why it is good to fail; how an illustration of a user interface isn’t a commitment to build something, rather an artefact to test and learn from. In this 30 minutes you'll experience listening, failing, drawing, design thinking, empathising, prototyping, usability testing, binning, pivoting, iterating and showcasing. (All of which is pretty much business as usual at Auto Trader!)

    The Pierre Masai from Toyota Europe will encourage participants to draft their hoshin and there is a possibly to use the open source version of eHoshin to start involving their teams, with a focus on the catch ball hoshin process to help them 'do the right things', not the usage of the system.

    The session will then be an open forum to discuss what you have learnt and probe the persenters for further details.

    Workshop Introduction

    The Lean Enterprise Academy have teamed up with GE Power Services, Service Centre in Rugby, to hold a pre-summit masterclass where attendees will need to use all of their senses to understand the work, current condition and potential problems on a real gemba. This workshop combines walking the process with grasping the situation by utilising our Lean Transformation Framework to gain a greater understanding of what is Lean, and potential gaps that the organisation should solve to move to an improved level of performance.

    GE Power Services, Service Centre in Rugby are leaders in providing repair solutions and spare parts for steam turbines to the power industry world-wide, the product & equipment is very large, can be slow moving and the work very technical and is therefore not obvious to see flow or performance. The facility, formerly Alstom Power started its Lean journey a number of years ago and is still at the early stages of their Lean transformation, and like many other business they employed a Lean leader and conducted a number of improvement activities.

    Only 26 places available

    Workshop Introduction

    There have been lots of approaches to Lean. These range from teaching tools, running rapid improvement or kaizen events, mass training in groups, introducing consulting led management systems or developing expert groups within organisations. One question that continues to be asked is how do we develop everyone to think Lean - after all "Lean Thinking" is the title of the book in which Lean principles were articulated to a wide audience.

    For the last couple of years I've been researching how to create "Lean Learning Experiences" - asking the question "what does it take to get each person we interact with to 'understand' think Lean and then actively take part in implementing improvements?" And "what would it take to develop a plan for each individual with the aim of implementing Lean right first time, on time - whilst increasingly deepening each individual's learning and knowledge?

    In this pre-Summit Masterclass I will share the research and walk people through the process we've been using to create a series of "Lean Learning Experiences" and discuss the benefits of such an approach for both organisations and individuals.

    Created in 2013, Spark is the BBC's in-house Lean transformation team. Spark brings resources, skills and ideas to help other parts of the BBC think differently about the way they work and change it for the better. We’ve worked with teams all over the BBC – including Blue Peter, Songs of Praise, Radio 1, BBC regional news and the Today programme. Spark projects quickly lead to changes which have tangible results, making a real difference for audiences.  

    In 2015, a three day ‘Lean for Leaders’ course was launched to create a network of champions and embed a culture of change across the BBC. Over 200 members of staff have attended to date and demand has led to the development of online ‘Lean Awareness’ training modules.

    Today’s session will take you on BBC Spark’s journey – from introducing teams to Lean, a term not widely known and often met with confusion or distrust in creative environments, to making the tools and theory relevant to content makers.

    Lean at 365 Café

    Oriol Cuatrecasas Founder And Lean Development Instituto Leean Management UK Lean Summit 2015 Lean Transformation – Developing The Capability To Improve The Work Oriol Cuatrecasas - Founder and Lean Development, Instituto Lean Management

    In this unique Learning Session, the 365 Café team will explain how they have applied Lean in a pure service environment. The Barcelona-based 365 Café is a chain of little cafés and bakeries with one production centre supporting all 78 of them. After applying Lean in the bread and pastry factory, team 365 quickly realized that it could apply the same approach to every shop.

    Lean techniques have allowed the company to not only grow in a competitive market, but to beat the competition on service, quality, and price, applying such methods as pull systems, supermarket management, standardized work, A3s, and visual management of the entire supply chain.

    You will learn:

    • How stock in shops and facilities was drastically reduced by 50 to 80%.
    • How productivity was increased without working more.
    • How leader standard work was implemented.
    • How visual management in the shop was established.
    • What the team has learned after one year into a formal hoshin process.
    • How the unique "zero space for waste" policy works in both facilities and shops.
