Face-to-Face Vistage Lean Leader Masterclass - July 2021 – Coventry, UK

Updated: Dec 4, 2021

Lean Leader Masterclass - Leadership of Improvement


Vistage Executives (Group 250) - Coventry - 15th July 1 2021


This was my second face-to-face event of 2021. I was speaking to a group of Vistage Key Executives in Coventry, UK in a Lean Leader Masterclass. This is the second delivery of this workshop within a three-week period, and it was fantastic to be back delivering with Bob Battye, Vistage Group Chair. He has over 20 years’ experience running Peer Groups and Leadership Coaching. The participants were highly engaging, open to learning and started to develop lean skills and knowledge through experiential learning in the two lean simulations.


The UK industry is coming under more and more pressure to improve organisation operating performance, reduce cost, improve quality, and schedule delivery. We are already under-performing in comparison to other G7 countries. Post Brexit, delivering business improvement is an imperative organisation strategy. Building business improvement capability, selecting the right business improvement methodology and driving the programme is critical to get a return on investment (ROI) and start to improve organisation performance. This Lean Leader Masterclass is for executives who will lead or be part of a leadership team considering or currently implementing a business improvement programme into their organisation.
