A specific decision to implement lean principles in the office is a decision against waste in favor of maximum value creation – in all areas of the company. You are not opting for a first aid kit, but a holistic approach based on the lean philosophy.
The challenge is to apply the lean philosophy across the entire company, including all business processes and employees – and to do so over the long term. Of course there is a need for methodological competence in the core areas. However, the real changes have to take place in the mind. The factor for success is a clear shift in attitude and company culture. The key to developing such a new corporate culture is a professional, high-performance team of leaders and implementation managers with conviction.
We conceived the lean management academy for the particular needs of indirect company units and service companies (including health insurance providers, insurance companies, authorities, and administrations). Based on our project experience, an emphasis is placed on process analysis and modeling, visual management with KPIs, the standardization of office departments, and problem solving in administration. The lean management academy creates a platform for practical elements and case studies that make the potential of methods visible and tangible for staff at the end of each thematic unit. An exchange and discussions among participants helps to create additional incentives and stimulus to make improvements in their areas of the company. A stronger team spirit supports the benefits of sustained learning success and a culture of continuous improvement.
As true lean specialists, participants will find it easy to “infect” their colleagues with the lean philosophy after completing the training. Specially selected examples and exercises for the area of administration will help you to drive forward implementation. This creates a high level of acceptance, which makes it much easier and faster to implement greater efficiency as a next step, and such implementation will pays for itself in a short time.
