The Daily Management System
A live 6-hour virtual seminar – April 22nd - 10:30am-5:30pm EDT
Ensuring sustainment through organization-wide operational governance.
A daily management system is a set of standard practices that keep improvement efforts on track and moving forward. DMS is the missing link in many operational excellence initiatives and the key to long-term sustainment by providing a structured way for leaders-at-all-levels to engage and provide direct, in-the-workplace, management and teaching routines.
We invite leaders to learn the leadership routines central to team empowerment and performance management that answer the questions: Why are we here? How do we get organized? What do we need to share? How are we performing?
An effective DMS is comprised of three elements, leadership routines, visual management, and accountability. Each of these elements work together to keep leaders-at-all-levels in touch with how things are going, while setting performance expectations. Your Daily Management System enables the building of leadership capabilities through teaching, coaching, and establishing standard work routines, while ensuring daily accountability for actions that eliminate the top 7-wastes.
How well are these three elements woven into the fabric of your operational governance policy?
