Why this management seminar

The term Shopfloor Management (SFM) is on everyone’s lips – and with good reason: It stands for improved leadership and organisation on the path to a Lean company. The methods and tools employed aim to improve the interaction between managers and employees, with managers themselves promoting the problem solving and improvement process. Transparent visualisation, comprehensibility and manageability play a key role in SFM. Early identification of a need for action and speedy problem solving can be achieved on a daily basis with a minimum of effort. If your company is undergoing ‘Lean Transformation’, then you should learn about Shopfloor Management and implement it! This phase requires particular behavioural strategies on the part of management. The social and leadership expertise of managers may prevent demotivation amongst employees. As a Lean manager, you increase their problem-solving competence and avoid micro-management. Take one or two days to reflect upon your own role in the change process and derive your future areas of action from this. This is an opportunity for you to learn about the new requirements placed on managers and the empowerment of employees, as well as discussing these topics with managers with practical experience and also Lean experts.
