Keynote: Jim Lancaster - Finding Profit: The Work of Management

Hear how Lantech, whose rapid Lean transformation was documented in the book "Lean Thinking: began backsliding, unable to further improve financial performance. Why did Lantech struggle over time (like many other companies) to sustain Lean gains? Discover how they reversed the slide by developing a daily management system to instantly detect and countermeasure shortfalls in performance. This required a major shift in management mindsets from giving instructions and judging individuals to asking questions and enabling good work.  Learn how daily management made it possible to successfully deploy hoshin plans using A3 analysis, and by creating daily feedback loops in every area of an organization.
