The Getting the Right Things Done Workshop is presented by Pascal Dennis, a professional engineer, author, and advisor to companies making the lean leap. The workshop is designed to demonstrate how strategy deployment can help leaders harness the full power of Lean. Organizational leaders at all levels and management team leaders who are responsible for strategy deployment are invited to attend.
This one-day workshop is based on Pascal's award winning book, Getting the Right Things Done – a Leader's Guide to Planning and Execution. Getting the Right Things Done chronicles the journey of a company and its President, an experienced lean leader, hired to guide the company in the right direction. The company’s challenge: “Something was missing: a way of focusing and aligning the efforts of good people, and a delivery system, something that would direct the tools to the right places", enter strategy deployment.
The book is designed to provide readers with a framework for understanding the key components of strategy deployment: Agreeing on the company's “True North,” working within the PDCA cycle, getting consensus through “catchball,” the deployment leader concept and A3 thinking. It links action to theory and reminds us that lean tools - like value-stream maps, kaizen events, and 5S - are only the means to an end, not ends in themselves.
