Gemba Management 

Managing in a lean environment creates a unique set of challenges for mid-level managers. It requires direct observation and support of work processes which requires more time managing from the floor — where the value creating work happens — and less time in meetings.

During this series of three 4-hour classes, learn how to adapt your management style allowing you to focus on what really matters. Learn about the key elements of leader standard work, visual management, daily huddles and how to communicate with teams as well as organizational leaders.
