ABOUT THE LEAN WORKSHOP:

Following the summit, various full and half-day interactive workshops will be organized with the summit speakers to provide the attendees with an in-depth knowledge sharing opportunity on various topics under lean, as listed below:
 


 

  • Workshop Leader: Nick Katko

    Nick Katko

    Workshop Title: An Introduction to Lean Accounting (8:00 am to 5:00 pm)

    Lean is a multi-faceted business strategy, with a primary focus on employees and learning. Through the use of various lean tools, practices and methods, employees learn to master their work, solve the right problems and help an organization learn how to doing things tomorrow it cannot do today. That’s why we should always talk about “lean thinking” as opposed to “doing lean”.

    Lean also changes the way an organization thinks about making money. The financial impact of a lean strategy is well known – all we need to do is look at the many companies that have been successful in their transformations. We know that focusing an organization on customer value will result in revenue growth, and that the deployment of lean tools and techniques that create flow and eliminate waste will result in improved cost management. These are the economics of lean.

    But before any of that appears, a fundamental shift must occur in what and how an organization measures itself operationally and financially. Financial management must be aligned with the economics of lean, and that’s what lean accounting is all about.

    To achieve success, a lean organization must develop an effective and efficient management accounting function that complements its financial accounting system to provide a knowledge base for effectively making decisions about the future (this is critical because the focus of financial accounting is on past activity). Lean accounting makes relevant information available to decision makers on a timely basis.

 


In this workshop, you will learn:

  • how to build and use a lean management accounting system to make relevant information available to decision makers on a timely basis
  • why lean organizations need lean management accounting systems
  • how to sustain a lean management accounting system with lean financial coaches


Workshop Agenda:

Lean Financial Thinking

  • how and why organizations must change their thinking about financial success in a lean organization


Creating a Box Score

  • Introduce and explain the methods of Lean Accounting and how each works in a lean company
    • Lean performance measurements
    • Value stream costing
    • Value stream income statement
    • Value stream capacity


Lean Financial Management – Using the Box Score

  • Demonstrate how to use a box score for typical operating and financial such as profitability analysis, cost management, financial planning, investment analysis and value stream financial management


Lean Accounting Transformation

  • Learn how to use the standard work for a successful lean accounting transformation


Who Should Attend?

General managers, owners, chief executive officers and presidents of lean companies. Value stream managers, Chief Financial Officers, Controllers, cost accountants, lean team members and others who are involved in financial management in lean organizations. This course is particularly applicable for those who have no previous understanding of lean financial management.
 


 

  • Workshop Leader: Dr Rene Aernoudt

    Dr Rene Aernoudt

    Workshop Title: 
    Learn, Improve, and Engage in your Lean Journey
    (8:00 am to 5:00 pm)

    Traditionally we learn in classrooms and in real life. Since Lean is so different from what we have learned in our formal education, many people struggle with the concept and find it challenging to apply. Lean is simple unless you choose to stick to your old routines and habits. In this workshop we teach in several ways how people can engage in real life experiences, test their Lean skills in applying them in funny, challenging, engaging and sometimes competitive games, quizzes and exercises!

    Organizations that use this type of learning find it a lot easier to engage people in their Lean journey, while teaching Lean skills along in an easy and at the same time, profound way. Participants will join in a quiz to test their skills, learn about flow and pull and the misunderstandings of sub-optimization of the parts versus real flow and pull in different exercises. Participants will solve some real life problems, debate about specific propositions and come up with their best solutions in simulations...

    By the end of the workshop, participants will have learned about different ways to engage people in learning activities, by engaging in different exercises, games and quizzes.

    Learning Objectives:
     

 

In this workshop, participants will:

  • Engage in multiple fun exercises and experience different ways to learn about Lean concepts and methods.
  • Test their own individual and group skills in solving practical problems and application of Lean ideas in different environments.
  • Learn how to engage people in learning as a group activity and how small exercises can make people change their thinking and behavior.
  • Learn how to create their own learning experiences within their own organization.


Please note:
This workshop is suitable for anyone interested in learning and teaching Lean in a fun and engaging way. It is not just about fun, focus is the learning of people.
 


 

  • Workshop Leader: Tariq Abdelhamid

    Dr Tariq Abdelhamid


    Workshop Title:
    Last Planner® System (LPS®): Reliable Workflow By Design (8:00 am to 5:00 pm)
     

    This 1-day workshop introduces the Last Planner® System (LPS®) – a project planning and production control process that asks for commitments and promises from team members to meet the overall target schedules. The course includes a building simulation activity, working backwards with sticky notes, to familiarize participants with all LPS® associated practices, namely, Phase Planning, Make Ready Planning, and Weekly Work Planning levels including percent plan complete calculations.  Case studies are discussed to emphasize the underlying principles in LPS®.  
     

    Learning Objectives:

    By participating in the workshop, the participants will:

  • Understand the principles of the Last Planner® System (LPS®) and associated Lean Construction concepts.
  • Experiment with implementing LPS® on a simulated  project exercise.
  • Use the LPS® deliverables to learn the art of negotiating commitments and production reliability assessment.
  • Discuss typical working environment of the Make-Ready and Weekly Work Planning meetings, including analysis and potential improvement cycles.

 

 


 

  • Workshop Leader: Todd Sperl

    Todd Sperl

    Workshop Title: Utilizing Value Stream Mapping to Identify Waste and Improve Performance (8:00 am to 5:00 pm)

    Workshop Objectives

    This workshop will sharpen your "eyes for waste" and "eyes for flow." Using a manufacturing case study you'll learn how to identify a product family, how to see the entire value stream for a particular product family, how to map the value stream to identify and eliminate waste, what makes a value stream lean, and how to develop a plan to achieve results.

    At the completion of this workshop, the learner will be able to appreciate the importance of identifying waste and understanding the current state before making any decisions to change the process.

    Value stream mapping is a lean-management method for analyzing the current state and designing a future state for the series of events that take a product or service from its beginning through to the customer.

    Workshop Description

    One of the cornerstones of any successful Lean project is the value-stream map (VSM). Along with representing every step in the process, it also identifies process barriers (or waste), material and information flow, and key performance metrics and other data. It differs significantly from tools such as process mapping or layout diagrams because it includes information flow as well as material flow.

    To fully grasp the power of VSM, you first need to understand and identify waste. We’ll start this fast paced, highly interactive, applied workshop by introducing you to the concepts of “Value” and “Waste” and what they mean to the customer. We’ll do this via an interactive exercise that highlights the 8 wastes and illustrates the value of standard work. Once we’ve identified waste, we’ll complete an industry specific value stream map utilizing LeanFITT (www.leanfitt.com).  
     

    Among other benefits, VSMs can help you:

  • Improve the overall flow of value to the customer and deliver the biggest benefits
  • Identify and eliminate process and system waste
  • Avoid the common mistake of "cherry-picking" individual lean techniques, which creates isolated islands of improvement and limited benefits
  • Reveal where lean techniques, such as kaizen events, could be utilized for maximum effects


This workshop shows you how to create and apply this fundamental and critical tool, utilizing our groundbreaking software LeanFITT. As part of the learning process, participants will practice the Value Stream Mapping cycle in a real lean environment under the guidance of an experienced Lean practitioner. This rare opportunity will help embed the learning through an experiential activity in a fast-paced, critical operation.
