Dr. Liker's book, Developing Lean Leaders at All Levels: A Practical Guide, was a 2016 winner of the Shingo Research and Professional Publication Award. We have taken the time to extract the individual seminars and lectures Dr. Liker used to create this world-renowned publication and offer them in a series of topic-specific learning modules. Follow along as we hear Dr. Liker at those actual presentations delivering first-hand to the students of Lean and Lean Practitioners.
Follow along as Dr. Liker explains the Lean Leadership development model (LLDM) and how it aligns with the accepted principles of operational excellence. Learn about the behaviors required to sustain it in the long term. Understand how leadership must walk the talk of true north. Find out how to actively engage in developing Lean Leader skills.
The teaching objectives for this section are to:
- Discuss what Dana did to sustain momentum after the initial gains.
- Share results of the operational-excellence effort after the first few years.
- Show how Lean results depend on philosophy.
