John Shook, LEI author and senior advisor, takes a quick look at the essentials of lean thinking and practice, especially key aspects that are misunderstood or that deserve greater emphasis. Then, he digs into the connections between lean and the reasoning in Daniel Kahneman’s book Thinking, Fast and Slow, drawing connections among Kahneman’s book, popular lean management books, and other Lean Talks presentations. Failure to appreciate our fast and slow thinking systems is the reason why we skip the most important part of the problem-solving methodology – reflection – and a big reason why continuous improvement efforts stall, according to David Verble, author and LEI faculty member. His two-part article, Be a Better Coach; Learn to “Force” Reflection, begins next week.

As with all lean practice, leadership begins with grasping the current state. For lean leaders that means understanding the external business environment, the organization's internal environment, and our own capabilities, according to LEI CEO John Shook. "Lean thinking teaches us that we are all leaders," Shook said. "We are all teaching all the time, and we are all leading all the time by example. "

John Shook is chairman and CEO of the Lean Enterprise Institute and is recognized as a true sensei who enthusiastically shares his knowledge and insights within the lean community and with those who have not yet made the lean leap. Shook learned about lean management while working for Toyota for nearly 11 years in Japan and the U.S., helping it transfer production, engineering, and management systems from Japan to NUMMI and subsequently to other operations around the world. While at Toyota's headquarters, he became the company's first American kacho (manager) in Japan. In the U.S., Shook joined Toyota’s North American engineering, research and development center in Ann Arbor, MI, as general manager of administration and planning. His last position with Toyota was as senior American manager with the Toyota Supplier Support Center in Lexington, KY, assisting North American companies implement the Toyota Production System. As co-author of "Learning to See," Shook helped introduce the world to value-stream mapping. He also co-authored "Kaizen Express," a bilingual manual of the essential concepts and tools of the Toyota Production System. In his latest book, "Managing to Learn," he describes the A3 management process at the heart of lean management and leadership. Shook is an industrial anthropologist with a bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee, a master’s degree from the University of Hawaii, and is a graduate of the Japan-America Institute of Management Science. He is the former director of the University of Michigan, Japan Technological Management Program, and faculty of the university’s Department of Industrial and Operations Engineering.

It's hard to imagine anyone not having heard of the A3. For nearly as long as people have peered inside Toyota, the A3 has been a common part of the Lean implementation road-map for many businesses. Like much of the Toyota Production System, the failure to produce tangible results with A3's has plagued many lean adopters. Join Pyzdek Institute Master Black Belt Kevin Ryan for an experienced practitioner's insight. Kevin has gained significant first hand knowledge of effective A3 application over several years of behind the scenes access inside a Toyota factory, and many years of leading continuous improvement programs, including coaching over one hundred managers and specialist Green and Black belts in A3 thinking. In this webinar Kevin discusses the effective usage of A3s achieving the dual aims of improvement results and developing people.

"A3 thinking" has become popular within the lean community, but not necessarily for all the right reasons. A3 Reports are simply a waste-free way for report writing and communication, but the basic building blocks of the A3 report provide a nice template for good thinking. In this session, Jamie Flinchbaugh provides a basic primer on A3, outlining its use as a method to structure, capture, communicate and coach. He discusses each of its components in greater depth, beginning with how to develop the problem statement and continuing through to verification and action. Learn tips and tricks to make the A3 a more effective learning tool in their own continuous improvement efforts.

The Lean Enterprise Institute believes that successful transformation calls for a situational approach that is based on innovating key dimensions of any organization through addressing a series of questions and to learn and improve by focusing on and performing the work of the organization. Effective improvement efforts and eventual organization-wide transformation entails a system-wide approach to transforming five fundamental dimensions, through continuously addressing key questions associated with each: 1) What is purpose – what situational problem needs to be addressed? 2) What is the basic thinking – what tools, management systems, culture, etc. are present? 3) How to improve the work? 4) How to develop people? 5) What leadership behavior and management system do we need? John Shook will describe each dimension of the Lean Transformation Model, share examples of the traditional versus Lean approach to process improvement and capability development, and highlight where organizations struggle and examples of what they have done to overcome such impediments.

It is about engaging every person for continuous improvement every day. The pace of this continuous improvement is what defines a genuinely lean company.

Principles guide every person through daily continuous improvement no matter what role they play or what time of day. Learn how to build a culture on true behavior-based principles.

The message of this presentation is to get leaders to think more about what they are teaching when they do a Gemba Walk, and to give them something to practice. In a traditional business or Lean environment a leader might naturally think they should be teaching waste elimination or cost reduction, but today we know that's too scattershot to effectively align and mobilize people. A good Starter Kata for a leader on a Gemba Walk may be to do standard TK coaching cycles for a while. Not that they should do that forever, but that they can start with the five Coaching Kata questions in order to develop some scientific-thinking mindset and skills in themselves. It's healthy for leaders to realize that they, too, are beginners in certain areas and that they also need to practice. The five Coaching Kata questions card is available at http://www.tiny.cc/5Q_purchase. In this presentation Mike Rother was accompanied by Beth Carrington, Rhonda Carpenter, Bill Costantino and George Greene.
