The Execute Program – A Lean Management Training leading to significant results

Management has an important role in transferring the principles and values described in booklets and power point presentations into action and behavior. An effective way of transferring such documents into behavior is to work with practical training.

The purpose of this training program is to strengthen the knowledge and skills of top management to perform and empower continuous improvements. It will give the managers a better understanding of what the managements role is and what behavior is needed.

The focus is on some fundamental “cornerstones” in a lean operations system. The training will give good possibility to share common things and align thinking within your business, so that all people will have the same view of what needs to be done to reach a culture of continuous improvements and in the end have a more successful business.
