Lean Talks with Gert, Joakim and Pia

April 16 2021, 10.00-12.00  

In this Lean Talk our guest is Johan Häggström, Senior Director Manufacturing Excellence, Getinge group. 

How do you perform a large scale lean transformation? Some mean that management has to abdicate from their old thinking, mindset and way of working. Is that true or are there ways to develop new way of thinking and working while unlearning the old ways at the same time. Getinge has been driving their lean transformation the last 3 years globally on their sites at three continents. In this Lean Talk we will get behind the thinking of their change strategy, take part of practical and concrete examples from one site and penetrate the difference in performance. We will listen to Johan Häggström, the architect of the change strategy and responsible of the program. Johan had similar roles at Tetra Pak and has been site director himself. We will also listen to a site director and take part of his view of the change. Both will generously share their learnings during this Lean talk. This Lean Talk will be in English.

Lean Talks is a series of webinars. We listen to a presentation together, ask questions to the presenter and then we reflect, analyze and discuss from our studio. The chat will be open at all times so your questions will guide the topic of the conversation.

The plan is to run Lean Talks 6 times per year and we kicked off on December 11th with an applauded presentation by Einar former VP of sales and service at Volvo and now CEO of Rejmes (he is also mentioned in Jeff’s book Toyota Way to Service Excellence and Toyota Way second edition) and Peter, plant manager at Scania with over 17 years’ experience of Scania Production System.  This was followed by an intensive learning discussion. Next time is with Jeff on February 12th and then we will have two more times before the summer on 16th of April and 4th of June.

The three hosts and panel for Lean Talks are Gert, Pia and Joakim:

Gert Frick is a former Director at Volvo Cars Manufacturing system. Gert has also been CEO of the Japan Management Association and Vice President at Scania with overall responsibility of the Scania Production System (SPS).

Pia Anhede and Joakim Hillberg have been consultants for over 25 years with a focus on the implementation of lean. They have experience from long-term lean transformations in a wide range of settings from heavy industry to service industry, parliament, healthcare in over 16 countries.
