Lunch & Learn – Lean Leadership: Strategy Development & Execution using Hoshin Kanri

February 5, 11:30 am - 1:30 pm



– Are you looking to win customers with your value add and grow?
– Do you feel your teams could execute better?
– Do you feel your leadership team is not on the same page or aligned with the same strategies and priorities?
– Is your company taking on too many strategic initiatives and projects at the same time and not getting them done on time?
– Do the company’s leaders not share and act on the same priorities with the same sense of urgency?
– And finally, are you focused on the right things to grow, change, or improve our business to deliver industry leading results and high performance to the customer?

If you answered yes to any of the questions above, then you should attend this lean leadership primer focused on Lean Strategies and Execution.

Join former Wiremold Company executive, Ed Miller, for this highly informative lunch and learn (Wiremold is the Shingo prize-winning company featured in the books ‘Better Thinking, Better Results’ by Bob Emiliani and ‘Lean Thinking’ by Womack & Jones).  Mr. Miller will discuss a powerful Lean Leadership process to drive key metrics and implement company strategy by aligning the leadership team and entire organization on the most important “Must-Do, Can’t-Fail” priorities.  It brings Lean thinking and behaviors to Leadership practices that are critical to grow and achieve your strategic objectives. We will discuss handling conflicting priorities, driving a balanced set of key metrics, and de-selecting less important priorities to focus the organization on a few things to get more done instead of doing a lot of things where nothing is getting done.

Besides the key metrics and how to deploy them, the focus of this talk is on framing company strategy into something that is actionable and deploying it across the organization. Emphasis will be on leadership team behaviors to drive accountability and focus with a sense of urgency.

This presentation will also show how adopting Policy Deployment and Lean Behaviors as a leadership system can engage, align, and bring together all members of the senior leadership team in the company’s Lean transformation as well as elevating Lean as a strategy.

This will provide business leaders with considerations on how to engage the senior leadership in lean transformation driving growth and industry leading performance. Additionally, leaders will walk away with a better appreciation of the advantages of committing to an enterprise wide Policy / Strategy Deployment process and what’s involved in making such a commitment.
