This conference provides a forum for owners who are implementing Lean in their organizations to connect with other similar Owners. We are focused on connecting and educating those on their Lean journey. The conference will be a series of owner panels with facilitated discussion to follow each.
LCI Owner’s Committee: Bill Seed (Jackson Health System); Al Manshum (Advocate Health); Scott Nelson (Advocate Health); Mike Mayra (General Motors); Victor Sanvido (LCI); Mike Staun (Procter & Gamble); John Bechtel (PSU); Digby Christian (Sutter Health).
This introductory training will include an overview to Last Planner® System (LPS) implementation. LPS integrates Lean principles and is based on conversation leading to reliable commitments by team members. Participants will learn the fundamentals of LPS. The training will include a hands-on simulation to reveal the importance of removing variation in work flow.
This workshop is offered in order to:
• Provide this LCI standard training module to CoP for the first time
• Expand CoP to those beginning Lean Journey, especially Owners
• Build on experience of CoP with LPS; co-facilitators sharing lessons learned
