Understanding the cohesion between workplace culture, and C.I.
Workplace Culture & Continuous Improvement
Do your strategic initiatives get implemented fully and on time? Are previous improvements sustained and improved upon, months and years down the road? If you have ever answered "no" to either of these questions, please know that you are not alone. Discussions with manufacturers (and service providers) across Canada indicate that change is only 20% the result of evaluating a new tool or method (the "technical" side of change). The remaining 80% of effort to make improvements in the workplace has to do with "people". Their willingness to evaluate, embrace, and implement changes is a very significant concern. Companies that have found a way of improving the "people" side of change report that this is also an incredible opportunity.
Join us, along with our guest Devin Melanson, as he shares training and coaching methods used with front line operators, leaders, and managers to unlock each person's commitment to making appropriate changes in how work gets done.
Devin is a Senior Advisor at VSS (Value Stream Solutions). Devin's 35 year career includes P&L accountability for consumer electronics, military, automotive, point of purchase retail, and aerospace. He has worked as an assembler, QC operator, team leader, supervisor, manager, plant manager, and as a multi-site Director of Operations. He is equally at home speaking to the teams on the shop floor, logistics, engineering, maintenance, and the ownership group in the board room.
