OVERVIEW

The skills required to lead effectively in our environment are rapidly evolving as the world of work changes faster than ever. Flexibility was the number one thing that employees wanted before the pandemic, and overnight more employees started to work remotely. 

Many companies have teams dispersed over different geographies; now the additional demands of also managing team members who work from home will remain a long term option.

This increased level of flexibility will require new approaches to leading teams. It’s essential to adapt in order to remain agile and collaborative, to maintain performance standards and service or production goals.

This 1 day course helps team leaders, supervisors, and managers examine their current practices, explore what good looks like, and develop a plan for how they can achieve effective working patterns with their virtual, home worker and on site teams.

WHO SHOULD JOIN?

Managers, team leaders, supervisors, and anyone who has to lead a team where virtual working is part of the flexible working patterns that you now offer.

Lean Practitioner Yellow Belt

Lean Practitioner Yellow Belt

OVERVIEW

One of the most frequent challenges we hear from organisations, is that while they want to improve, they struggle to find the time. Sound familiar? If it does then our Lean Practitioner Yellow Belt course is right for you.


Rather than presenting a set of tools, this course combines Lean tools, soft skills & psychology with improvement principles (improve flow, identify value, PDSA, mapping the value stream etc.) within a proven Kaizen methodology. Kaizen events are short but very effective improvement workshops designed to tackle problems quickly and effectively whilst stimulating a lean improvement culture in all levels of the organisation.


This ensures you will leave with an ability not just to apply Lean improvement but to make it work effectively in your organisation, from day one.
