Don't let the bureaucracy of everyday compliance issues get in your way of being lean and achieving excellence.
Hear about a revealing systematic approach that puts compliance properly in its place -- behind your pursuit of excellence.
Discover the secrets of incorporating non-value-added necessities into the value-added work stream.
One characteristic of the approach distinct from many lean initiatives is that it does not rely solely on incremental kaizen and "low-hanging fruit".
High Performance Operations looks at several facets including common mistakes that hinder high performance, the role of leadership, culture, trust, empowerment, learning and communication -- as prerequisites.
See how lean and kanban can be used to easily, seamlessly, effectively, and transparently incorporate compliance requirements into the flow of an operation. This also provides the insight and metrics for an operation to pull itself towards predictable, high-confidence performance -- the realm of high maturity -- while remaining agile and responsive.
A select few organizations dominate their competition on every conceivable measure: time to market, quality, system reliability, security, and so forth. They do so by creating and sustaining a pace and breadth of internally generated improvement and innovation, that rivals cannot keep up. Examples span design and operation: including Pratt and Whitney--which compressed from 4 years to 3 jet-engine design cycle time while halving engineering change orders, a micro-chip fab which cut by half its throughput time while increasing capacity, improving quality and yield--leading to a per unit cost cut of 35%, and the US Navy's nuclear propulsion program which has operated since 1954 without any reactor related injury or environmental contamination. By the end of the session, attendees will have a view to how market beating performance can be achieved by:
-- designing processes and systems so problems can be seen when and where they occur.
-- solving problems at the time and place detected to build new useful knowledge
-- sharing new found knowledge for systemic incorporation
-- leading an organization capable of relentless learning and adaptation.
