"How the HR Professional's Role Can Optimize Operational Efficiencies, Infrastructure, and Workflow"

SDHR Roundtable 2017 Lunch and Learn Series

 Sponsored by

Human Resource professionals are in a unique position to influence company culture and business results through the development of both people and processes.  Join Michael Valenzano from Equal Parts Consulting for an interactive discussion about strategies to apply principles of Lean Manufacturing to the role of human resources.  During the event, we will discuss:

People & Processes: HR is the Glue - A discussion to see how the HR professional’s role in human capital development crosses into the world of operational workflow, processes, and development of key performance indicators.

  • An introduction into Lean Principles - A high-level overview of what it means to THINK and ACT Lean.  Through the application of Lean Principles, the merging of HR and Operations is brought into focus and the potential business results revealed.
  • Putting Lean Principles into Action - A collaborative group exercise to practice a few fundamental Lean Principles in a real-life exercise.
  • Culture & Leadership - A discussion about how organizational culture and leadership buy-in is foundational for the ability to impact tangible change through the embodiment of a true Lean culture.  HR’s role is key to success.
  • How Organizational Values Drive Operations - With Lean Principles in mind, a model of how company values truly drive business decisions and ultimately impact company operations will be reviewed and discussed.
  • Time Awareness through a Lean Lens - Taking into consideration all content covered, an individual exercise to explore how to apply Lean Principles to individual time management through an analysis of Value Add versus Non-Value Add tasks.
