Lean Leader Masterclass - Leadership of Improvement
Vistage Group CE5 - Birmingham – 1st July 1 2021
Last week I was speaking to a group of Vistage Chief Executives (Group CE 5) in Birmingham, UK in a Lean Leader Masterclass. With covid restrictions lifting, this is my first in-person workshop since delivering a Change Leadership Alignment Workshop in Dresden, Germany, March 2020. It is fantastic to be back delivering and engaging leaders face-to-face and it was great to work with Bob Battye, Vistage Group Chair CE 5 who has over 20 years’ experience running Peer groups and Leadership coaching.
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 and 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.
