Lean Strategy: Learning to Compete in a Fundamentally Different Way

Daniel Jones – Lean Enterprise Academy (UK)

Today, the practice of management has narrowed increasingly into a finance-driven approach: reducing headcount, consolidating footprint by buying or selling companies, and replacing individual responsibility with IT systems. As we’ve all experienced, both as customers and employees, this generates ever larger bureaucratic companies with disappointing products or services and disengaged, distrustful employees. We know there is a better way to compete. We have been fortunate to witness how businesses can grow sustainably and profitably by focusing on customer value through developing the businesses’ people.

Lean Innovation for Business Growth

Cosimo Panetta and Irene Cassarino – The Doers (IT)


This is an interactive workshop presenting a market driven, evidence based, experimental approach to uncover new growth opportunities for companies and innovators.

The session is designed in a participatory way, to challenge attendants in the practical exploration of the three basic principle of the Lean Innovation approach:
• the Build-Measure-Learn learning cycle: the scientific and disciplined search of feedbacks from the market that goes along with the development of the new product/service;

• the concept of MVP (Minimum Viable Product), that depicts the design formula of lean experiments;

• the Innovation Accountability principles, which value learning over delivery, and user behaviors over financial results, as basic metrics of progress.

Participants will involved in a serious game first, and in a debrief discussion afterwards.

Transform the Company with Hoshin Kanri

Sergio Ferigo – FPZ (IT) e Matteo Consagra – Istituto Lean Management (IT)

Hoshin Kanri is the backbone of Toyota’s approach to profit management and associated techniques of target and kaizen costing, the real secret that has led to Toyota’s profitable profit performance.
Hoshin develops and integrates strategic guidelines with tactical and operational projects by linking them to a multi-year profit plan.
Using an innovative negotiation process known as catchball, hoshin involves management teams at every level in the organization to provide high-quality financial information about current and future operations before the annual budget is finalized; at the same time, financial goals are closely linked to specific cost drivers and process improvements that ensure that these goals will be met.

In this interactive Learning Session you will learn some of the basic concepts of Hoshin Kanri and will see the application in a Company, FPZ, which has been adopting it successfully for some years.

Lean Thinking: From Lean Toyota 1.0 to Lean Industry 4.0

John Shook – Lean Enterprise Institute, Lean Global Network (USA)

Whence lean thinking? From Galileo’s inquiry and methods for modern science to Darwin’s studies on the origin of species. From Indian Buddhism to Chinese Confucianism. From Taylor to Ford.  Myriad ingredients generated, endured and merged in the intense environment that was Toyota in central Japan where their varied elements were nurtured as they coalesced into what became known as lean thinking. Years pass, lean thinking consolidates, thrives and diffuses to countless situations, contexts, and places. From Japan to Europe. From startup to mature corporation. From healthcare to hospitality. From traditional manufacturing to Industry 4.0. Lean thinking enables effective and efficient performance of enterprises and individuals through continuously addressing problems of any kind: from fighting fires with consistent application of tried and proven methods to open-ended exploration of the most thrilling ambitions of humankind, leading to innovations that are still unfolding. Leading to where?

LEARNING SESSION

Lean Transformation Framework

Roberto Ronzani – Istituto Lean Management (IT)

We are all trying to transform.
That’s what lean thinking and practice are all about: challenging us to reflect deeply on how we can improve this situation, improve my organization, or improve myself (and of course, all three of them).
Each of us knows from experience that this work is never easy.
Whatever your role in the organization is, whether you are improving one operator’s work at the gemba or trying to transform an entire organization, this is a tough work.

A successful transformation calls for a situational approach that is based on innovating key dimensions of any organization through addressing a series of questions. This approach is Lean Transformation Framework.

In this interactive Learning Session you’ll learn the right questions to ask that will make you able to drive the transformation in a more effective way.

Set-Based Concurrent Engineering – Part 1

Monica Rossi – Politecnico di Milano (IT) and Alessandro Piccolo – Istituto Lean Management (IT)

Do you need to boost your ability to develop new products quickly and effectively? What about getting to a working prototype for your new product more easily and with no rework?

If so, this is the Learning Session where, playing playing a Lego-based game, you can discover the powerful approach to innovation of Set-Based Concurrent Engineering (SBCE).
With SBCE Game the players, divided into team, will challenge themselves into building a flying airplane following specific customer requirements. Along the game the importance of having proven knowledge, developing parallel alternatives as well as using sets versus single solution points will emerge.

This session continues after the break with Set-Based Concurrent Engineering – Part 2.

LEARNING SESSION

Lean transformations for sustained financial performance improvement.

Arnaldo Camuffo – Bocconi University, Istituto Lean Management (IT)   Mario Nardi – Pietro Fiorentini (IT)

This breakout session offers a guide to lean transformation. Starting from the necessity to acknowledge uncertainty, it provides a systematic approach to:
• reduce the probability of failure of the transformation;
• achieve operational performance improvements ensuring they translate into financial performance improvements.
This guide is grounded on the results of a recent study on the financial performance of 200 hundred Italian SMEs that seriously undertook a lean transformation and of 50 case studies of successful lean transformation.

Participants will learn how to:
• connect lean transformation efforts, operational performance improvements and financial performance improvements
• estimate the necessary investment and effort in lean transformation and the ROI of that investment
• prevent obstacles and barriers to lean implementation and to sustaining the ROI to lean investment
The session will be based on evidence and data and will be highly interactive.
Feel free to bring the data about the investment, effort, operational performance and financial performance improvement of your own lean transformation for discussion review.
Alternatively, feel free to contact the instructor to discuss the data before the summit.

A3: powerful “tool” to solve problems

Andrea Mastrovincenzo and Alberto Girardi – Istituto Lean Management (IT)


A3 is a methodology developed in Toyota for the widespread and capillary application of the PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) method, namely problem solving, for continuous improvement:
It offers at least two more conceptual tools in some revolutionary ways:
• outlines the foundations of an organization that coordinates its activities and carries out its own decision-making processes, not relying on formal authority (linked to hierarchical position and division), but on responsibility, involvement and consensus, knowledge and focus on pull-based authority;
• outlines the foundations of an organization that, while making decisions and solving problems in order to better serve its customers through its own value streams, at the same time improves itself by improving its members thanks to the role played by master (sensei) who has the responsibility.

In this interactive Learning Session, through simulations and presentation of real cases, you will understand the potentialities of the methodology.

Lean Accounting

Nick Katko (USA) and Alessandro Mazzero – Zoppas Industries (IT)


Companies that are seriously pursuing a Lean journey soon find their accounting, control, and measurement systems need to
change to support the new strategy. The principles and methods of Lean thinking and practice are quite different from traditional business and require different measurements.
The changes are driven by both positive and negative needs. The positives include accounting, control, and measurement processes that support the new Lean strategy. The negatives are to eliminate the harmful impact of traditional accounting and measurements.
There is a third change driver that is related to waste.
While traditional companies often build increasingly complex and sophisticated accounting systems, Lean companies recognize their accounting and measurement systems need to be stripped down to the minimum amount of work.

In this interactive Learning Session you’ll learn about some of the Lean Accounting approaches that permit Company to use in a simply way accounting data to drive the strategic and tactical choices.
