Sitting is (often) a waste of time
Managers spend up to 50 percent of their working time in meetings. Often, these meetings lack focus and result in no action-oriented decisions. The remaining time is characterised by emails and many interruptions. As a result, much productive time and effectiveness is lost. Unfortunately, this is the daily routine for many.
One hour more productivity per day
Lean self-management is an efficient method for individuals or teams to increase productivity. By applying Lean self-management tools, the individual’s mailbox is tidied up, the number and quality of meetings are optimised, and personal productivity is significantly increased. The consistent questioning of one’s own processes and routines reveals the potential for improvement. Tools for prioritising and organising everyday life help in this process. This brings stability to everyday work and creates room for the unforeseen.
The way to self- and team optimization
The basic conditions are different in every situation. We take this into account in an initial phase: through observations on site, interviews with key persons, and a personal questionnaire, the most important fields of action are identified.
In the second phase, individual solutions are prototyped on sprint days and tested in everyday life.
Finally, coaching follows to support and verify the sustainability of the developed solutions.
Ideally, you should carry out such an optimisation project with a team (e.g., human resources) to benefit from the greatest impact. In this way, the system frees up most capacity and creates the framework conditions to successfully shape further changes.
Optimization project with a team
Together with the respective team, we analyse the initial situation, develop optimisation approaches, and test whether the desired effect is achieved. This lays the foundation for a continuous improvement process.
The training module gives an insight into the Lean approaches to self-management. The participants work out the first prototype of a solution and thus have a starting point to redesign their own personal way of working.
