Lean Culture Benchmark: Kijun, Hansei, & Kaizen

This event is organised by the Midlands Lean Network and aims to provide an opportunity for practitioners, business owners, beginners, and enthusiasts to Learn, Share, & Network. All businesses with an interest in Lean and Operational Excellence are welcome.

We all know about Lean tools and techniques, but what about Lean Culture. Perhaps more importantly, how can we Measure it (Kijan), Reflect on It (Hansei), and Improve it (Kaizen). The Lean Culture is based on a company mission & vision, how their people live by it, and the people pillars of Leadership, Teams, & Engagement. This talk will discuss these People Pillars, how we can first observe them, then Measure them. We will then introduce steps to Reflect & Improve striving for the perfection of Organisational Ikigai!

This session will include a 30 mins presentation with Q& A followed by group discussion and networking.

May 5th @ 11am
