WHY YOU SHOULD COME TO THE EVENT?                       



What are the biggest obstacles you are facing in your lean journey? Company culture, weak management support, lack of lean knowledge – even budget – were among the answers most often shared.


Becoming a lean organization involves much more than eliminating defects and waste and continuously improving business processes. Lean is a business system focused on re-designing and managing processes to create value for customers. Lean means learning to see the organization from a process perspective, ensuring an efficient flow of work through that process and aligning the rate of that workflow to customer demand. To achieve this ideal state where work is conducted ‘just in time’ requires a change in thinking and behaviour from employees and managers; a lean mindset if you like. Training, coaching and mentoring can help people to learn the lean principles, practices and tools that they will need to create customer value but many organizations still struggle to create the lean mindset or culture that they need to ensure continuous performance improvement.


ABOUT THE EVENT:                                                               


The Vietnam Supply Chain LEAN SYMPOSIUM 2016 has been designed to help organizations identify the blockages they are experiencing relating to lean thinking and behaviours, promote dialog in the area and identify action that can be taken, encourage the learning from within the industry through industry roundtables, panels.


This year, the LEAN Symposium has a themed focus on the Lean Mindset, Change Management, Change Culture, and named after the inspiration derived from The Four Rooms of Change® from Swedish psychologist, Claes Janssen which was developed based on research into individual and collective self-censorship and defence mechanisms. The Four Rooms of Change is a theory that deals with change, with what happens with people and organizations in change and transition and with how they can influence the change process. The four rooms - or psychological states of mind – are known as Contentment, Self- Censorship and Denial, Confusion and Conflict and Inspiration and Renewal.

—Keynote: “Dream” never come “True”

Most companies supposed that effective and efficient lean operation is a foundation of all manufacturing processes. In fact, Effectiveness in Lean is not as expectation because of subjective and objective factors such as:

1.Lack of persistence
2.Goal is not specific at each stage or even ambiguous.
3.Lack of commitment and determination from Board of Management
4.Less (or not enough) skillful staff involved in the taskforce team
5.General implementation method
6.Employees are considered as a “a part” of the process instead of  “apart”.
7.Traditional thinking, reluctant to change or innovation 
Change Management: 8 steps of Kotter model
“We Didn’t Do Anything Wrong, But Somehow, We Lost” Last Speech by Nokia’s CEO
For leaders of organizations, managing change is an important strategic task. In the last ten years, there have been numerous studies which all confirmed that between 60-80% of all change projects fail fully or partly: either the objectives of the project are not achieved or the projects cannot be completed in time or on budget. Usually, a lot is at stake: money, personal reputation, and the health of the organization.
So, the very important question for any change leader is: How can I make sure that my change project is successful? John Kotter, one of the leading management thinkers and writes has given his answer to this question by providing an eight step model for leading change. Kotter's eight steps model is probably the best known and the most applied.
