It can be difficult to deploy lean, but it can be done. You just need to get past the obstacles that can make you want to give up. And perhaps the biggest obstacle is people's resistance to change. But while most companies encounter this sort of resistance, successful companies like Pfizer find ways to overcome this hurdle. During this presentation, Pfizer will show you how to move past resistance and continue on your lean journey.
In this presentation:
- Find out why people are reluctant to change.
- Discuss the difficulties in implementing lean.
- Examine how resistance affects lean deployment.
- Hear how Pfizer overcomes employee reluctance to change.
- Learn how you can get past resistance and deploy lean successfully at your organization.
