1 Day Lean Six Sigma Continuous Improvement Leadership Workshop

Description

The objective of the Lean Six Sigma Continuous Improvement Leadership Workshop is to provide executives, managers and supervisors with a fundamental understanding of the main principles of Lean Six Sigma/Continuous Improvement and their roles in ensuring that a culture of Continuous Improvement is created and sustained within the organisation.

The subject matter, principles and terminology are aligned with the ‘Competitive Systems and Practices’ courses which are nationally-accredited under the Australian Skills Quality Authority. Efficiency Works will tailor the workshop agenda and training content to customer requirements, and to the workshop participants.

The training workshop provides an introduction to the fundamentals of Lean Six Sigma so that participants fully understand the tools and techniques being deployed by the Continuous Improvement delivery team, and the Lean Six Sigma training that is being received by the organisation. This will provide participants with increased understanding of how to establish, lead and monitor a Continuous Improvement capability within the organisation.

The group will explore the effective planning and deployment of Continuous Improvement and will address issues such as organisational structure, building an optimum CI capability, CI roles & responsibilities, creating a CI culture and effective communication. Participants will also learn the key aspects of measuring Continuous Improvement performance and its role in creating and sustaining a Continuous Improvement program.

In the final session, the group will be trained in the main facets of CI Strategy Deployment using the principles of ‘Hoshin Kanri’ to ensure that goals and activity are in alignment, and that effort is directed to the areas of
greatest need.

Participants will be introduced to the A3 worksheet which supports the scientific approach to continuous improvement through the application of PDCA (Plan Do Check Act). The A3 worksheet is a simple but effective way to record the process, the analysis, and the action plan on a single piece of paper. In this way the A3 becomes a powerful way to record and communicate all aspects of the Hoshin Kanri process.

The workshop is conducted over one day and comprises a combination of training delivery, presentations, case studies, facilitation and productive discussion that will challenge participants, transfer knowledge and develop skills that can be deployed in the workplace.

The Lean Six Sigma Continuous Improvement Leadership workshop delivers the following outcomes for participants and the organisation:

  • A fundamental understanding of the main principles of Lean Six Sigma/Continuous Improvement
  • A understanding of their roles in ensuring that a culture of Continuous Improvement is created and sustained within the organisation
