Lean is a different way of doing business and requires a different kind of leadership. That is why you need lean leadership if you want a lean enterprise. However, businesses often fail to lead differently when they start on their lean journey, then wonder why they aren't achieving the results they expected. It is because Lean leadership needs a different set of skills. We can show how this is done. This workshop will allow you to learn lean leadership skills and explore leading in a lean framework. That way, you too can get the benefits of proper leadership in your lean enterprise.
