Lean Thinking and 21st C Management


Mr John Hamalian
Singapore Representative
Southeast Asia Representative
Lean Global Network

Synopsis

In today's fast-paced, ultra-competitive and cost-sensitive global environment, it is more important than ever to increase organisational effectiveness through the engagement of people, the elimination of waste and the cultivation of innovative teams who are constantly striving to improve. This requires modern, agile, inclusive and customer-centric management concepts in order to fully leverage changing organisational dynamics, customer and employee expectations, technologies and business models. Yet most organisations are still operating under a largely 20th Century Management System and set of leadership behaviours. Technology has changed dramatically over the past few decades, but the management approaches we use to run our organisations have not kept up adequately. We welcome you to a 21st Century way of managing and leading your organisation.
