A Structured Approach to Developing Lean Leaders

Do you need to create a pipeline for diverse lean leadership talent? Develop a culture of promotion from within? Provide development opportunities for production employees?

 

For ten years, Herman Miller has systematically developed over 350 Group Leaders and Team Leaders in our ongoing journey to build a Toyota Production System (TPS) management system across global operations. We will share how the partnership between Operations, Human Resources and the Continuous Improvement Herman Miller Production System (HMPS) team was fundamental to building a structured program based in practical application of both TPS and leadership skills. This unique development approach provides constant reinforcement of our commitment to continuous improvement through the engagement and development of our people. 

 

In this session you will learn about:

  • The structure of Herman Miller’s program to developing lean leaders
  • Selection and assessment process
  • Lessons learned
  • Participant testimonials
