Duration: two days (8:30 to 5:30) but can be tailored to suit specific needs of the organisation. Preparation involves collection of information about the organisational context. The first day of the workshop will establish a core set of concepts, language, principles, techniques and perspectives about Organisational Improvement and Lean Six Sigma for leaders. It will also demonstrate why certain leadership practices are essential for improvement initiatives. Skills in commissioning and planning improvement projects are practiced including developing a list of opportunities for improvement. A fun simulation improvement project will be the vehicle for this.
The second day draws on the information collected & on the understanding developed, to consolidate a real plan for improvement. Assessment is conducted on the current application of five key leadership practices that drive & sustain continuous improvement in the organisation. A facilitated planning session is used to select real improvement initiatives that the organisation needs to undertake. This is based on a review of the organisation’s strategy.
