A specific decision to implement lean principles in production is a decision against waste in favor of maximum value creation – in all areas of the company. Those who choose lean are not opting for a first aid kit, but a holistic approach – a philosophy. And anyone who wants to learn a philosophy in a crash course will suffer exactly that: a crash!
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.
Operating at your site, the lean production academy creates a platform for practical elements that make the potential of methods visible and tangible for staff at the end of each thematic unit. Based on your entire value stream in production, participants learn about methods, while some initial main areas of potential are illustrated with reference to 5S, waste walk, and lean logistics, for example. Possible courses of action to arrive at concrete solutions are demonstrated in terms of problem solving, line balancing, and the value stream. A focused exchange and discussions in groups and among participants help 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 employees and peers with the lean philosophy after completing the training. 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.
