Positive Tribal Transformations of three Negative Cultures

Argus Industries & TerraCab Industries
How I transformed three companies into cultures that are Serious Fun, and still got all the results we hoped for!

“No one wants to work, but we all have to, so why not make it FUN!”.  This is a philosophy that was sparked by words from Mike’s father over 20 years ago and took him down the road to make the culture of Argus the focus and make the financial statements the results of their efforts. Intentional culture and LEAN manufacturing have blurred the lines at Argus of what it means to be efficient and results driven. Mike’s talk will show you how leadership starts and ends with culture. The Argus Tribal Culture is something you want to learn about, but beware, this is not a formula, but an example of how to build your own tribe from the ground up!

Aligning Accounting and Operations on the LEAN Journey

Barry-Wehmiller
Bridging the Gap Between Accounting, Operations and Strategy

Accountants typically do not understand Lean, do not know how to measure Lean improvements and generally have not been asked to participate in Lean activities that usually focus on the shop floor. On the other hand, Operations’ professionals typically achieve great gains and are surprised their efforts are not recognized by the Accountants. It is imperative that Accounting and Operations work together to develop new metrics and “plain English” financial reporting.  This presentation will illustrate what can be done to eliminate the disconnect between Accounting and Operations.

Leader Standardized Work - Planning for Success

Cummins
It Starts with a Plan

Cummins Mid-Rage Engine Plant (CMEP) is very similar to every manufacturing plant in existence today - we are all striving to survive to stay in business to keep our jobs and the jobs of those around us. As front line supervisors and team coordinators, we are given one of the most important jobs within the plant: leading out team in the battle of survival and the success of this battle is the battle of the fittest that is the name of the game.  Those that can will and those that can’t won’t.  In order to be successful at this you will need to involve everybody in this fight, improving every day to serve the customer better than the day before with a minimum of waste.  Your key indicators will be your KPI’s (S-Safety – protect our greatest asset – our people, Q-Quality – protect our customers, P-Production – protect our business).

The Three Spaces Of LEAN Transformation

Manitoba Housing
Lessons learned by former private sector leaders starting a LEAN journey in a public sector organization       

As former private sector aerospace technical leaders, we worked for many years in a culture of continuous improvement and LEAN transformation.  After we moved to new leadership careers in the public sector, we advocated to start our new organization down its own LEAN journey.  Join us as we walk you through our lessons learned through the initial stages of our LEAN transformation at Manitoba Housing.  We will share a conceptual model that we have developed that we believe is crucial for the senior leadership to follow, if the LEAN journey is to be possible.  The presentation will focus on the importance of the senior leader role in the Lean transformation, and the tendency for the leader to be the key obstacle to success.
