The program provides practical tools and methods for improving operations and processes of any scale, in any industry, and in any function. Participants will learn how to implement these techniques in their own organizations. Through the process of visual management, they will discover how to identify the value-added elements of their own work and of their organization and more importantly, identify opportunities for improvement and how to get started based on a framework of principles and methods – ‘’It’s not a people problem, it’s a design problem’’.
The program is intended for executives, senior managers, and leaders from every sector. Managers at any level of responsibility will benefit from this program. Team sare welcome.
