Engage, Empower & E(i)nvolve

JELD-WEN Windows and Doors
3E's for Lean Executio


At JELD-WEN Windows and Doors we choose Greatness, but to achieve this we first have to get good at what we do... and do so consistently. The JELD-WEN Excellence Model (JEM) is the foundation we are using to build the right Lean culture, live our values and improve every day. We are being careful not to implement change by doing things ‘to’ our people, but rather implement change by working 'with’ our people. In this presentation, you will hear how the 3E's: Engage, Empower and E(i)nvolve (spelling error intentional) are used to engage all members of the team and drive out fear. We will discuss the importance of communication and how the 3E's improve teamwork, drive alignment, create accountability and ensure our purpose and values are ‘alive’ throughout the organization.
