Gemba Academy, the leading provider of online lean manufacturing and lean enterprise training, is pleased to announce a free webinar to be presented on May 23rd. This webinar is by Bob Emiliani and is titled "The Leader's Role in Lean Success."
Bob Emiliani will present two examples of companies that spent more than a decade applying Lean principles and practices. He will discuss why one company succeeded and the other failed, as most companies do.
Bob will focus on how the leaders from each company comprehended Lean management and how that laid the foundation for the results achieved.
The lessons learned point the way to improving an organization's Lean management practice and achieving consistently better results in a business environment dominated by global competition.
Bob Emiliani is a professor in the School of Engineering and Technology at Connecticut State University in New Britain, Conn., where he teaches courses on Lean leadership, Lean supply chain management, failure analysis of management decisions, and research methods.
Prior to joining academia in 1999, Bob worked in industry for 15 years and had management responsibility in engineering (R&D, new product development) and operations (manufacturing and supply chain). He had responsibility for implementing Lean principles and practices in both manufacturing and supply networks at Pratt & Whitney. He is the author or co-author of numerous books and papers on Lean leadership and Lean management.
