Young Managers

A sequence of modules looking not only at management but also at the holistic lean mentality in production.

We focus not just on lean management but on the holistic mentality in the production organization. In today’s harsh reality in terms of competition, process optimization has no alternatives.

We emphasize the main principles in production and, through applying them, we turn them not only into knowledge but also into skills for the participants in the project.

  • Production meeting the customer’s needs
  • Preventive rather than corrective measures – an emphasis on the rate and cause of faults rather than on the consequences ensuing from them
  • Minimizing losses and balancing between time, quality and value
  • Continual improvement processes
  • Flexibility but not at the expense of efficiency
  • Establishing productive and long-term relationships with colleagues, providers and partners and the concept of perceiving them as internal customers

A fundamental part of our concept is conducting a detailed inquiry into the enterprise and the organization’s structure in order to get a grasp of all the specificities.

The Lean Management training is carried out in a series of a certain number of consecutive modules in accordance with the preliminary diagnostics, with the emphasis being on the practical aspect.

The way in which we approach 5S projects and trainings is based on a single introduction and long-term maintenance.

Looking at 5S, we aim at answering three questions: what actually this system is; how it is designed; and, why it is so necessary.

We focus on the three questions while getting into the details and through a diagnostics of the organization with regard to production lines. The format of examining the order and cleanliness of the workplace involves interactive work meetings during which every participant has the goal to substantiate (not just state) his/her opinion and after that, through our influence, set rules.

We pay close attention to every single component of 5S:

  • Sorting
  • Setting in order
  • Shining
  • Standardizing
  • Self-discipline

We take charge of measuring the productivity and efficiency before and after the work meetings that have taken place. We have no doubts that people know best what kind of order would be the most appropriate one at their workplace – we, in turn, stimulate them to think and make a decision.

The processes of delegation and control lie at the heart of modern leadership and are a foundation in building a motivated and efficient team.

A common reason why leaders fail is the perception that they themselves would best complete the task (which is true in many cases) as well as their refusal to delegate. Of course, we are also of the opinion that one should not always delegate and not at any cost. However, on the other hand, there are situations when the circumstances allow for that, naturally by applying a certain level of control. The question is when to delegate and when not to delegate. When is it appropriate and when is it not? In addition, there is also the question of how this control will be carried out whenever delegation takes place. In the Delegation and Control module, we focus on the most important questions:

  • Why do we have to delegate?
  • Why don’t we delegate?
  • When and how should we delegate properly and efficiently?
  • How are delegation and control related?
  • We answer all these questions emphasizing their practical applications through exercises and real business cases.

A fundamental principle in our concept is to conduct a preliminary in-depth inquiry into the business and the organization’s structure so that all the specificities can be taken into consideration in the course of the training.

A program of modules presenting the advantages of conflicts as a result of their effective management.

Topics of the Training

Conflicts in every team constitute one of the biggest challenges for the managers of these teams. They can be destructive but can also be a new beginning.

Goal of the Training

The goal is to improve the team and individual attitude towards the conflict as well as to have this conflict perceived not as a source of stress but as an opportunity.

The training will focus on the basic components leading to effective behaviour before, during and after the conflict:

  • Emotional intelligence
  • Patience
  • Quick thought and response
  • Active listening
  • Creative approach

A fundamental part of our concept is assessing the business and the structure of the organization in advance so that all the business and regional specificities can be taken into consideration. The duration of every topic is in accordance with the client’s needs. The trainings take place at a venue and time that fit the nature of the business and our clients’ requirements.
