Lean and the Corporate Agenda with Guest Jacob Stoller

To skip introductory material, FF to 03:10

Accompanying slides:


Why is it that even the most successful lean projects often go unrecognized in the executive suites? The issue may be lack of alignment – the fact that executives don't see a connection between Lean progress and the corporate agenda that they are expected to fulfill.

This webinar will help directors, managers, supervisors, Lean champions, and consultants understand how corporate agendas affect executive attention and decision making, and what this means for Lean projects.

Participants will learn how to cultivate an ear for business developments that concern executives, and to communicate Lean results in a language that will resonate with all senior leaders.

The evidence will be drawn from the author’s new book The Lean CEO (McGraw-Hill), which explains, through in-depth CEO interviews, the circumstances leading to enterprise-wide adoption of lean in 28 organizations.
