Manager-Supervisor Lean Training


Frequently managers & supervisors are hired into companies and allowed to run the business with extremely small amounts of training.  Of the training they have received on the job, the emphasis is usually on results; exactly what we don’t encourage them to focus on.

We know that we can predict the results if we simply, measure, manage, and know the normal conditions of our processes.  The heart of Lean Six Sigma is movement from the trivial many (variables & process factors) down to the vital few.  Is it different in managing people?

Some of the same tools that we use to document standard work for our processes, software, and equipment work equally well – if not better – when we apply it to how we manage the business and people around us.  Let us show you how these tools apply to managers and supervisors and how they do their work.

Hiring managers concede to “we’ll see if s/he works out.”

Hope is not a strategy – train your managers & supervisors on time-tested principles that work

We can modify this three day training based upon your needs and the experience of your team.  Below are some critical tools and topics that we cover and the class is fun and filled with breakouts and examples.  EQUIP YOUR TEAM with the tools that they need to be successful.
