LEADER STANDARD WORK: The Glue of Sustaining Continuous Improvement Webinar

November 9, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am



  • Complimentary review of standard work, your production floor and CI processes
  • Identify goals and objectives, with routines to follow
  • Begin developing plans to track, audit and adjust
  • To schedule your site visit, contact Emily Lee at elee@imec.org


Consider these wise words from Larry Fast, Founder of Pathways to Manufacturing Excellence: “I think of Leader Standard Work as being fundamental to any company that is committed to continuous improvement and cultural change.”

In today’s workplace there is significant emphasis on leadership, from the CEO down to the shop floor. There is a basic understanding that without strong leadership at all levels of the organization, employee engagement and Lean initiatives will falter.

This session will focus on the how Leader Standard Work (LSW) effectively changes the paradigm of how leaders work with their teams. LSW is a best practice moving leadership away from an audit mentality toward structured coaching, which instills a sense of ownership, accountability, and continuous improvement. LSW is a shift in how we lead and drive improvement.

The webinar will cover the following points:

  • What is the purpose of LSW
  • How does LSW fit into a Lean management system
  • What is – and is not – Leader Standard Work
  • Benefits of LSW in developing a Lean culture
  • Effective and purposeful practices to introduce LSW
