Building your own Training Academy

Creating sustainable enterprise excellence requires an organisation to build capability to both lead change and actively participate in improvement. By investing in your people, you are investing not just in driving continuous improvement activity today, but enabling a sustainable platform for culture change long into the future. But in order to unlock this potential, companies need to look beyond simply sending people on courses and expecting transformational results. A long-term investment in development programmes that engage the hearts; minds and hands of those involved is critical.

This webinar will provide a holistic and sustainable view of how you can build an academy that delivers results:

We will cover:

  • Why building both Continuous Improvement and Leadership skills is critical to sustainable transformation
  • The foundations of a Continuous Improvement Academy – key elements that will enable sustainable continuous improvement and deliver results
  • How you can ensure training in all its forms is impactful and meaningful
  • How to develop a roadmap and put in place governance to ensure the Academy delivers a Return on Investment.

You will be engaging with Nicky (One of our senior Facilitators and Leaders) and each other throughout and, we want to see and hear you, so please be prepared to share video and audio. Join us from your own internet-connected device, preferably a laptop or desktop computer rather than a phone or tablet. One person, one device. Join us from a quiet place, which is not shared with other participants on the session.

You do not need any specialist software or to have used Zoom before. The link above is all you need. If it’s your first time, there’s a widget to download to your device at the start so allow a few minutes for this.
Video – have your webcam on, we want to connect with you (Please don’t worry about how you look or the state of your background, we are all working with what is possible right now rather than what might be perfect!).
Audio –For the best sound use a headset with microphone and a USB connection but your mobile phone headphones plugged into your device audio work really well too. If you don’t have either of these them you can use the sound on your device but you will need to be somewhere quiet!
Notetaking – have a pen and paper handy so you can take notes.
Please don’t plan any other remote meetings in between the two session, it can be intense being online and we’d love you to be fresh for this learning and to get the most from it.

Onsite Insights visit to Trumpf

TRUMPF has been a Family business since 1923. Innovation and technology leading is important to TRUMPF’s strategy. With nearly 15,000 employees worldwide and revenue over 3.5 billion Euros there is a global manufacturing network, all linked and optimised by SYNCHRO (TRUMPF’s Lean model).

In additional to Laser manufacture, TRUMPF produce Machine tools for cutting and bending materials. Other business fields include Additive manufacturing, Photonic components and Extreme Ultra Violet lasers (used in semiconductor manufacture).

TRUMPF UK Laser Ltd (aka TGBL) is growing and evolving with many new, “sustainable” markets finding applications for Pulsed Laser products, such as components for electric mobility.

TGBL (formerly SPI Lasers) is fully integrated into TRUMPF’s Production network as a Customer and Supplier to other TRUMPF subsidiaries. TGBL also sell directly to non-TRUMPF Customers.

TruPulse nano Products (one of the three Product Value Streams at TGBL) represent high volume Production within the TRUMPF network and have leveraged SYNCHRO methodologies to focus on one piece flow, levelled Production and linked planning triggers to minimise inventory and increase flexibility.

An in-house designed MES system enables structure and transparency to Production status and capacity.

You will see a Production line and workstations designed to eliminate waste and provide transparency. Monitored with simple shopfloor management and complex, deep dive data from MES to optimise and redesign.

The visit will focus on Unit 4 in Southampton. There are two other Production units in Southampton, for other Product line assembly and Fibre Production. There is also a Production site in Rugby, who is both a Customer and Supplier to Southampton Cells.

Empowering a Culture of Continuous Improvement in HR

Empowering business transformation means ensuring effective strategy deployment exists to drive the results desired.  There are a number of strategy deployment approaches that could be adopted. During the webinar we will share with you two approaches – Hoshin Kanri (the X-Matrix) and OKRs (Objectives, Key Results) and how these have been deployed successfully in a range of environments including HR.

 

Join us to find out how you can use strategy deployment to empower your teams.

 

Strategy deployment requires the alignment of Key Result Indicators and Key Behavioural Indicators to be successful. It also requires every person within the organisation to be empowered and this occurs when people feel a personal connection with the strategy and there is clear ownership and accountability.

 

During this webinar we will share how you can develop and deploy a strategy
deployment system that delivers sustainable results.

 

The webinar is led by our experienced Leadership & Coaching team who have supported organisations around the world deliver programs that have made a real difference.

Creating your Leadership Manifesto with Dr Ken Hames MBE FRGS FRSA SAS

Have you ever wondered what people say about you as a Leader? Or considered how you might influence this to achieve your personal desired results?  Join us for this virtual event where Dr Ken Hames, shares a tried and tested approach to develop and define the core leadership principles that you want to commit to adhering to as a leader.  These will be the principles you hold yourself accountable to – principles that empower you to do better and be better at creating a high-performance culture.

Not only will you consider how you will develop your own credo or manifesto together we will also examine strategic thinking and high-performance goal setting and how these elements shape our personal messaging.  Deploying motivational goals is key to high performance – understanding the difference between goal and outcome measures and how to use these to ensure high levels of clarity and engagement, is an essential leadership skill.

Why listen to Ken Hames??

From humble beginnings as a boy working on his grandfather’s hill farm, he eventually rose to the rank of Major in the SAS, commanding Britain’s Anti-Terrorist Unit.  He is one of the very few British officers to have worn the red beret of the Parachute Brigade, the green beret of the Royal Marines and the sand beret of the Special Air Service.  As a special forces squadron commander, Hames was consistently graded as outstanding as a leader.  While pleased with the accolade, Hames is quick to point out there is little time to stop and congratulate yourself.

The physical and mental agility required is hard won and it takes constant effort and desire to stay at the head of the ‘A’ team. Ken is not however, the conventional ex-Army Officer.  His experience is vast, and he has a proven track record working at board level with organizations like HSBC, Airbus and GSK.  He has operated, facilitated, and consulted all over the globe and has a deep understanding of the international business arena. Ken explains that running his own business has taught him many things, number one being ‘Doing nothing is not an option!’…and when you are ahead is the time to ask questions like; ‘What are your leaders going to develop next?’

Ken’s manifesto is…..Lead, Follow, Change or Get Out of the Way!

As a result of the course, you will be equipped to:

  • Define how you want to be perceived as a Leader
  • Codify your personal manifesto / credo for leading
  • Understand how your messaging will re-enforce your manifesto
  • Decide which tools will help you to achieve your objectives

Shingo Align Workshop – Virtual Training

This two day virtual workshop integrates classroom and on-site experiences at a host facility to build upon the knowledge and experience gained in the DISCOVER EXCELLENCE* workshop. It takes you deeper into the Shingo Model™ by focusing on the principles identified in the Enterprise Alignment dimension:

• Think Systemically

• Create Constancy of Purpose

• Create Value for the Customer

To succeed, organizations must develop management systems that align work and behaviors with principles and direction in ways that are simple, comprehensive, actionable, and standardized. Organizations must get results, and creating value for customers is ultimately accomplished through the effective alignment of every value stream in an organization. The ENTERPRISE ALIGNMENT workshop continues the discussion around defining ideal behaviors and the systems that drive them.

*DISCOVER EXCELLENCE is a prerequisite to this workshop.

SHINGO Cultural Enablers @ Viatris – Virtual Workshop

This 2 x 8 hour virtual training workshop is SHINGO certified and will provide you with insights into the Cultural Enablers dimension.

About this Event

This interactive virtual workshop builds upon the knowledge and experience gained in the DISCOVER EXCELLENCE* workshop.

It takes you deeper into the Shingo Model™ by focusing on the principles identified in the Cultural Enablers dimension:

• Respect Every Individual

• Lead with Humility

Cultural Enablers principles make it possible for people in an organization to engage in the transformation journey, progress in their understanding, and build a culture of organizational excellence. Organizational excellence cannot be achieved through top-down directives or piecemeal implementation of tools. It requires a widespread organizational commitment.

The Leadership System week is naturally succeeding the Production System course, by plunging into the elements that makes the production system run and develop. Here we try to answer the HOW and WHY!

“Extremely valuable training for me as a manager. This week gave me a boost to inspire and support my company further in the Lean journey. I didn’t realize how much I could actually influence the result!” Workshop Manager, Sandvik Materials Technology

To read about Toyota Kata or Lean Leadership is one thing but to really learn HOW the leaders work in daily business from shop floor to top management is another thing. What do management of people, quality, cost and delivery really imply? The purpose is to understand how leaders in Lean organizations act, both operationally and strategically. You will be guided by managers with at least 30 years of TPS experience for five intensive days of discussions, Gemba
visits and workshops, ending with a common conclusion and YWT. You will find numerous references and inspiration to continuous improvements directly applicable to your business back home. During the week in Japan, we will also find the time to enjoy Japanese culture, food and points of interest.
