David BrundDavid Brunt: Action research to improve the lean education process

David Brunt is Chief Executive of the Lean Enterprise Academy, the UK affi liate of the Lean Global Network. He has been applying and researching Lean since 1990. At the ELEC 2015 conference David will share results from the action research conducted with Halfway Toyota – a car dealer group in South Africa. It challenges much of what has been done in traditional lean implementations.

  • How has the way we educate changed over the 16 years we’ve worked in this sector? What have we learned?
  • How have we built this learning into education at Halfway Toyota? What was different? What are the implications for Lean implementations?

 

Simon ElvnäsSimon Elvnäs: You want to do it, you can do it, and you fail

Simon Elvnäs is a Ph D candidate at the Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden. Simon was challenged by the fact that among the fl ood of management literature, there is almost no research that build on real data on leadership behavior. Simon has taken 63 cameras, fi lmed more than 300 leaders from 17 industries and categorized hundreds of thousands of leadership behaviors. On the general level, the research shows what many suspect: Leaders in general do most of what is least wanted by employees, and the least of what is most wanted. Even more interesting is what happens on the individual level when a leader gets to see, categorize and understand his or her own behaviors.

  • How can a leader become aware of his or her own behaviors and see the potential for improvement?
  • Which leadership behaviors create direct positive effects?
  • How can we work with behaviors and real data as tools to develop the performance, motivation and innovation of both leaders and employees?
