Continuous improvement should be high impact, economical, sustainable and exciting. It doesn't always happen, though. Numerous studies reveal that the leading cause of failure for continuous improvement initiatives is a lack of leadership support – often by well-meaning leaders who don't understand the key role they play in developing a culture of continuous improvement. In this session, hear from lean manufacturing expert Calvin Williams, CEO of Impruver Technologies. Key to the effort is leader standard work, a system of structured routines at all levels for coaching and driving perpetual improvement. Attend this presentation and learn from Impruver Technologies how the manufacturer embraces leader standard work as part of a robust continuous improvement program to maintain alignment to company strategy, drive the pace of improvement, ensure the sustainment of gains and systematically develop the workforce.
