Lean Talks with Gert, Joakim and Pia

June 4 2021, 13.00-15.00

In this Lean Talk our guest is prof. Christoph Roser. He is a professor at Production Management at the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences, and runs the fantastic and renowned lean blog AllAboutLean. Christoph has just published the book All About Pull in Production. Christoph has a hand-on approach and a lot of practical experience from working at Toyota in Japan, Bosch in Germany and at McKinsey.

All About Pull Production is a detailed and practical guide on how to implement pull systems. It values functionality over theory, but also explains the underlying relations. It is not a high-level philosophical discussion of lean, but a book to help you roll up your sleeves and get the job done. It is written for the practitioner.

This Lean Talk is for you who works with pull systems, are in the change process going from push to pull or interested in learning more about pull systems. Kanban is the best known approach to pull, but there are more. This Lean Talk will give you an overview on the different ways to pull and which one may be best for you, and why.

As always in our Lean Talks we will deep dive and get to the details in pull systems and not just cover the principles. It will be 2 hours of presentations and discussions in this interactive set-up.

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.

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.
