Gain an understanding of how to set impactful goals and align them to the strategic framework. Learn the keys to making goals meaningful at the team level and participate in a class exercise of setting goals that align to the organization.
How can we make this easier and faster? Where do we focus our actions as a team? How do we see normal from abnormal in our daily work? Where do we need help? In this hands-on session, based on the “Build-a-Bear” workshop concept, participants will learn how visual management can help answer these questions as we discuss the keys to setting up a visual.
Discover the keys to selecting metrics, how to make them meaningful at the team level and how to simplify their use at the team level.
Discover how focused objectives can help a team achieve their goals or solve more complex problems. Learn the difference between a mission statement, goal, focused objective and an idea. Participate in class exercises of identifying focused objectives.
Building upon the skills taught in Selecting & Simplifying Meaningful Metrics, in this hands-on session, participants will learn to turn goals and metrics into visuals that will allow their team to see the “gap” between where they are and where they want to be. Using real-life examples from UW teams, participants will create visuals which support team-based problem solving and enable teams to see the impact of their ideas and the progress they are making toward their goals.
The final session in this series, discover how visuals are used to help facilitate the flow of huddles, in all their forms, and encourage participation. Learn how all of the elements of a successful visual management system serve key functions in how teams interact with each other as they engage in continuous process improvement. Examples from visuals and huddles from lean teams on campus will be used to illustrate how teams can use this key management system to get the most from their huddles.
