Webinar Overview

Lean Management is a philosophy and a set of practices to help organizations learn faster and execute better. To succeed with Lean, we have to go beyond thinking merely about delivering value for the organization and its customers. We have to directly touch employees and managers and ensure that we deliver value to them, too.

Lean also encourages (and requires) a knowledge-oriented culture where managers help their people set and reach learning goals. This often involves a signifiant shift in mindset, skills, and behaviors for managers.

In this webinar we will discuss social aspects of Lean, how we can deliver value for individual employees, and what managers must do to ensure that we do.

You will learn about:
