Telfer Executive Breakfast Series: Lean Leadership

Friday, February 19, 2016, 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.

This is one of a series of similar events where our clients are given the opportunity to experience what Telfer offers in its leadership and executive development programs. A light breakfast will be served.

Most organizations are struggling to do more with less, and many are turning to Lean to address this challenge.  The most successful Lean organizations have been able to deliver 300 or 400% more mandate without working harder, while inspiring their people.  To create a breakthrough Lean transformation, the role of the leader is more important than ever before, and different from traditional thinking.   Gain insights into how leaders from these top organizations apply advanced leadership thinking and practices from the field of Lean Enterprise to their day to day work, to create and sustain breakthrough improvements as well as ongoing habits of continuous improvement in themselves and their teams.
