WHAT YOU WILL SEE & LEARN
Attendees will tour through the plant including manufacturing, packaging and warehouse to see best practices. The Site Operational Excellence Team will provide attendees with an overview of the Asahi Operational Excellence System (OES). OES takes lean tools like 5S, Short Interval Control & SMED applies them to a standardised format and then teaches all aspects of the business on how and when to apply them. These systems are then assessed & measured against a set of standards that enable us to see how mature our business is in utilising these tools
Love and Lean Workshop
Win their hearts and minds – equip their hands! Learn how to blend love & lean to create a winning combination towards its goal of an environment where employees are “engaged when we are here…fulfilled when we go home!”
In his presentation, George Saiz shares the bumpy road and pitfalls towards developing a people-centric culture. We then look at how we can connect the hearts of engaged employees with the tools of lean. However, there is a challenge lurking out there and he will share ways to overcome that challenge.
In the workshop, we will examine what great leadership looks like, and understand the connection between engagement and leadership. We will take a look at the first step towards building healthy relationships in the workplace.
What attendees will learn:
- How we can have a good or even great company culture but still miss the mark
- What one leader in one company did to navigate the journey towards building a people-centric culture
- Examine great leaders at all levels…what they look like, their behaviors and characteristics, and the environments they create to produce outstanding results
