Would each of your employees say they are consistently provided with the tools, training, resources, information, encouragement, etc. to contribute to the organization that adds meaning to their life? Answering yes to this question might equate to an extremely high level of engagement. Daily Engagement is designed to get you closer to answering yes.
With Daily Engagement and the use of visual management, employees “see as a team, learn as a team, and act as a team.” This team-based management system assists front-line teams to reflect on facts and data from the prior day, plan resources and processes for a successful day, and align on experiments to improve for tomorrow.
Every day, commitments are made to customers. Unfortunately, those commitments are frequently broken in terms of quality, delivery, or cost. When problems are identified, the frontline is not always equipped to address them. They need help.
Tiered Management enables the need for support or information to meet the daily customer demand to be elevated. Every level in the organization uses daily routines to elevate and react to problems, coach, share learning, and follow up on decisions. Those routines ensure staff is equipped to be successful today and provide quick and effective bidirectional communication. Subsequently, long meetings and email chains are reduced or eliminated.
One of the main responsibilities of leaders is to provide alignment to the organization's vision and selected improvement goals. Many organizations struggle with providing a laser focus direction where every team and employee can be part of the organizational transformation.
With strategy development, the organization defines the strategic initiatives and the platforms of capability needed to reposition the organization toward its vision. Then, it helps to cascade the operational goals and the responsibility to achieve them across the organization. Each level of the organization and every team has aligned goals and a plan to achieve them. Workshop participants will learn the strategy deployment process, tools, and behaviors.
LEADER STANDARD WORK
Sustaining the process redesigned and the improved results they bring can be challenging. The fact is that using Lean processes without changing leadership principles and practices never goes well… when leaders stick to their old ways the new Lean processes will eventually break.
Every garden needs tending. Leader standard work includes activities that support Lean principles, including scheduling a time to see reality from the Gemba, developing and coaching their team members, and assessing and reinforcing the alignment to the True North goals. Leader standard work is the glue of the Lean management system that helps keep the organization’s transformation journey in motion.
