Lean Management Systems
Peg Pennington, President - MoreSteam
With all the focus on agile and lean methodologies, organizations keep trying to simplify our very complex world. Yet, few organizations have been successful in sustaining streamlined processes. Rapidly advancing technology, volatile markets, laws, industry regulations, and other factors attack different components of established processes. We begin to expect, and in some instances might accept, more system failures or system "accidents." What counter measures can be implemented to effectively lead your organization through the complexity of daily operations?
Join Peg Pennington as she discusses how operationally excellent companies respond to system complexity to build sustainable, high-quality processes that exceed customer expectations. A key success factor is establishing Lean Management Systems that are truly lean.
In this session, the following key points will be covered:
- Identifying the sources of complexity that increase vulnerability to failure
- Clearing the path with Lean
- Balancing the four components of a Lean Management System
