Creating the Lean Mindset

Leadership, Employee Engagement & Team Learning workshop

Lean thinking is transforming the way organisations operate. A new transformative approach requires transformational leaders.

Are you attempting to improve and transform your business? Are you or your leaders prepared to take on the challenge? Do you know why employees need to feel safe? Is your culture supportive of change?

With Lean and Change journeys, implementation is a challenge, sustaining change even more so. Getting the culture and climate right is critical to sustaining improvements. To do this we need to create a climate where an innovation culture can flourish. This is a climate where team members all have a Lean Mindset in a Psychologically Safe environment.

This workshop will walk you through the 3 behaviour pillars of this culture, The Leader, The Individual, and the Team. We will show you how it is measured, and how each impacts the other, all based on substantial research undertaken.

In this two-day workshop, we focus on the behaviour change that is required for organisational change. This is not management skills training but a workshop of self-reflection and adoption of new behaviours.

Past Events

“Going Lean” in the Non-Profit Sector - Introduction and Case Study with Stuart Nelson (Jigsaw Consulting) and Catherine McDonald (Anne Sullivan Centre)

The Lean Non-Profit

All Non-Profit Organisations will of course be lean, but there is a world of difference between being frugal and applying the lean methodology. Being lean goes far beyond cost-cutting, however. The lean process enables organizations to speed up, be more competitive, and build the capability of their people to identify issues and improve their operations. From this they can increase capacity as they improve efficiency and effectiveness.

There is often a perception Lean can’t be applied outside of the manufacturing setting, but this is changing thanks to many successful lean initiatives in services.

How can Lean be applied to Non-Profit organisations (NPOs) for often complex service delivery?

This breakfast briefing with introduce Lean and the Lean Mindset, its possible applications in Non-Profits and we will hear a case study of a Lean project in the Human Services from Catherine McDonald of the Anne Sullivan Centre.
