Trying to be like Toyota is a mistake. What leaders need to do instead is learn from Toyota—learn how to convert their flabby organizations into dynamic, constantly improving and profoundly customer-focused entities. A “fit” organization, led by a “fit” leader, has the ability to continually improve in a manner that delivers superior performance and results over the long haul.
This exclusive webinar with internationally renowned author, speaker and coach Dan Markovitz is based on the new book, Building the Fit Organization. Dan distills the lessons from the Toyota Production System into six core concepts, and delivers them in the easily understandable language of physical fitness and athletic excellence—no Japanese, no English jargon, and no hackneyed, alienating references to Toyota.
In this webinar you will learn the best way to:
- Increase commitment to improvement
- Increase value, don’t reduce costs
- Think horizontally, not vertically
- Define the right way to work
- Work with visual management and real time feedback
- Coach with respect—and in the trenches
