Workshop: Achieving People Excellence

By Norbert Majerus, Norbert Majerus Consulting

Managing the people through a lean innovation transformation

In order to be sustainable, a lean transformation requires a change in company culture. And the culture does not change unless the people change. A successful lean transformation is not only about implementing lean principles but also about engaging the people in the process. Changing the people is the more difficult part and it does not happen by itself.  I personally found the people transformation a lot more challenging than the process implementation. I learned that the best opportunity to engage the people is to make them part of the change process itself. It starts when the initiative starts and it does not end, just like the lean journey never ends. 

In this workshop I will share what I learned about:

  • Using a proven roadmap
  • Motivation and engagement
  • Respect for people
  • Leadership change 
  • Sustaining the gains

I found that people who took this workshop were able to use what they learned immediately when they got back to work, regardless of how far along they were in their transformation.

Cadence Pull and Flow Management – Enabling Lean Startup

Cadence Pull and Flow Management – Enabling Lean Startup – Bob Stavig The session will cover the basic cadence pull and flow methods and LPPD tools for the typical development work of “new product to an existing market” then expand that flow to encompass a “new product into a new market.”

Cadence Pull and Flow Management is a critical principle within LPPD, in which through visible knowledge and other LPPD tools maps out the flow of learning through the use of integration events and other decision points, this enables the process of build-test-learn in order to deliver the highest value to the customer. The methodology of Lean Startup establishes an approach to begin that pull in the general area of: “new product to a new customer”. This methodology focuses on a learning process that guides the developers and effectively the customer, with short learning cycles, towards a solution that maximizes the value to the customer.

Bob Stavig is a R&D Project and Program Manager. Experienced in Lean Product and Process Development and Scrum/Agile. Bob spent 35 years at HP, the last 20 as R&D Project and Program Manager in Vancouver, WA.

Strong background and experience with the use of Lean Product and Process Development (16 years) and Lean Manufacturing. International business experience (Asia) in the areas of supplier development, factory operations, and technical management.

Durward Sobek, Professor at Montana State University

LPPD and coronavirus vaccine development

To challenge himself as well as the audience Durward chooses to apply LPPD on the development of the vaccine for the corona virus. He discusses if the development could go faster if they apply the knowledge of Lean Process & Product Development. A true application of the theories on a real, and high priority, challenge. This will be a real “must attend” presentation.

Durward K. Sobek II is a Professor at Montana State University in Bozeman, MT, and Program Coordinator of Industrial and Management Systems Engineering. He holds Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Industrial and Operations Engineering from the University of Michigan, and an A.B. degree in Engineering Sciences from Dartmouth College. Dr. Sobek has been researching lean product development and lean healthcare for nearly two decades, focusing on how organizations can increase their performance capacity through the application of lean principles. He is a co-founder of the Lean Product and Process Development Exchange, Inc., and has published numerous articles in publications such as Harvard Business Review, Sloan Management Review, and IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management. He is also co-author of two books: Lean Product and Process Development, 2nd edition; and Understanding A3 Thinking: A Critical Component of Toyota’s PDCA Management System.

Exchange

Following the spirit of Lean Product & Process Development EXCHANGE, there will be good possibilities to Exchange knowledge with other attendees as well as with the speakers.

After each presentation, we have a session +Reflections and interaction where you will reflect and interact on the learnings from the presenter.

We end the virtual LPPDE with some final reflections and remarks and hope the Exchange will continue on our LinkedIn site.
