TSMA Q3: Lean Personal Accountability
If you want to lead lean, you've got to live lean.
This workshop shows you how.
You've spent years applying lean to the value streams in which you work. But have you applied lean thinking to your own individual work?
The same wastes and inefficiencies that make it hard to create value for the customer at your company are making it hard for you to create value in your own job. That's why you're buried in email, why you can't finish your job during the day, why you constantly feel so overwhelmed. The good news is that the same lean principles that work on the shop floor work at your own desk.
Q3 Speakers: Dan Markovitz, Author 'A Factory of One', Millie Marshall, President, Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana, Inc., and Josh Jacob, Indiana Furniture.
