Winning Teams™ | How to Build a Culture of Continuous Improvement

Integrating leadership skills and technical improvement skills creates bottom-line results while also developing improvement habits.

Winning Teams™ Practitioner Level
12 Days

Winning Teams™ is a “train and do” approach that enhances an organization’s team-based problem-solving skills. The program consists of training sessions focused on learning and using tactical Lean tools and training sessions that will focus on the human side of Lean (KATA).

Winning Teams™ Improvement Coach Level

The on-site Improvement Coach series is designed to help change agents transition from being problem-solvers themselves to becoming coaches and developers of problem-solvers within their organizations.

Not only does this put a stop to the cycle of reactive firefighting these individuals often fall into, but it also multiplies the effectiveness of the coach by empowering and mentoring others who report to or serve on the coach’s teams, whether directly or indirectly.
