ATDps: May 2018 Seattle Chapter Meeting
Learning at the Speed of Lean
Lean, the system of eliminating non-valued activities and increasing value, is used in the operations of manufacturing, aerospace, software, service and healthcare with great success.
The blistering pace of change, far flung employees, sky-high expectations, and the explosion of digital technologies make today a turning point, and an incredible opportunity, for learning organizations to embrace radical new thinking and methods.
Concepts and tools like customer value, real demand, value streams, the Eight Training Wastes and ‘build to order’ can dramatically improve ROI. However, activities like assessing needs and creating and deploying content will change dramatically. This is no different than for every industry and company that has embarked on practicing Lean.
Be provoked, practice using ‘Lean Learning’ tools and begin your Lean journey here.
1. Apply key Lean concepts
2. Build and analyze a value stream
3. Distinguish between real demand and artificial demand
4. Identify training wastes
5. Reduce cycle time and implement ‘build to order’ training and learning
Todd Hudson hates waste.
As a long-time Lean practitioner and Six Sigma Black Belt with decades of lean operations management experience, he’s seen everything the business world can throw at you. From frenetic growth and high volume, to cutting out fat, cutting into muscle and cutting your own throat.
Todd was a continually disappointed and frequently annoyed customer of traditional training approaches. In the late 1990’s, he pioneered applying Lean to training in his workplace and began helping companies implement ‘Lean Learning’ in 2006.
He holds an MS Engineering from UMass and a BA Chinese from Connecticut College.
