Length: 1 hour, 10 minutes
You need good lean leaders to sustain lean implementations. But while many companies succeed in implementing improvement measures, they aren't always successful in maintaining those improvements. That's where great leaders can make a difference. But leader actions and words have to be shaped into a system of consistently repeatable behaviors, practiced at every moment of truth and at every level in the hierarchy. If your sustainment efforts are stalled or you need a boost in driving critical leadership behaviors, this presentation will offer you insights, tools and systems to target and reinforce the right behaviors. This presentation will show you how to build those lean leaders you need to keep your business on its lean journey.
