Learning Lean at the Public Sector

Whereas Lean companies are often praised for their focus on value for customers, Public Sector organizations are equally often despised for the complete lack thereof. This has led some practitioners to modify Lean practices or even deny applicability of Lean principles to work in the Public Sector. Speaking from a broad experience in applying Lean in Public Sector organizations Riegholt Hilbrands will show how Lean practices can be applied successfully and the pitfalls that do exist.

Match with customer needs

Lean transformation always starts on the customer needs. But sometimes seems difficult to successfully fill them and at the same time solve the organisation problems.
In this session the story of a Lean transformation on a company very close to the customer can give the hints to achieve that. On the session a 5-point strategy to follow will be shared. Come inside a fantastic lean transformation of an hotel company in Canary Islands. Going to the real gemba and sharing a mojito included!

A session for decision-makers: how to measure your lean maturity journey

For the past few years, the presenter engaged in the experimentations and development of a system to identify the gap between a company’s current and future states. It is called “Lean Maturity Assessments” and assesses governance, leadership & operations in multiple dimensions.  Aligning the results with vision and strategy can help leaders prioritize and zoom in on the next gap that needs to be addressed, with the help of the Lean Transformation Framework. There is a lot of confusion around lean assessments and audits out there, and this presentation aims to bring clarity to the subject.
