Extreme Business Makeover Edition: Rebuilding Your Culture to Support Continuous Improvement—Success Stories Using Measurable Management
Implementing new techniques for continuous improvement will yield temporary improvements but true long term gains only come when the underlying culture is addressed. Old habits creep back in without leadership that can move you away from a traditional style of management and control. This session will discuss the need for culture change, the difficulty of culture change, and an effective path to change using a program called Measurable Management in concert with other organizational development tools. This program, conducted over six months, helps managers and supervisors develop a listening and involving-style of leadership. It is critical to developing a culture centered on effective teamwork and a customer focused approach to continuous improvement. A panel of companies will share their stories of success.
The session will be facilitated by Vicki Anderson, Anderson Resources, in collaboration with Industrial Solutions. Anderson helps people develop leadership skills that matter for peak performance and has worked with manufacturing organizations for over 20 years to help them develop great cultures that can support continuous improvement.
