About this Event

In 2016, Harvard Business Review reported that 67% of CEO’s globally failed to deliver on their strategic objectives, due to poor internal execution!

In 2017, the National Employee Well-being Survey reported 84% of employees experienced work-related symptoms of poor mental health, yet only 16% felt able to speak to their line managers through fear of negative implications to their job or career prospects!

We at MaxCap believe one of the biggest challenges’ businesses face today is how to improve their strategy execution capability, whilst pro-actively supporting a positive mental health environment!

In order to protect our people we must learn to work smarter not harder!

Business Agility is key to every organisation’s success and is the ability to flex your entire workforce quickly and effectively to align to, and deliver on, changing Customer and Business needs. An essential skill in our world of rapidly changing technology and ever increasing Customer expectations!

To achieve true business agility you need to be able to align your entire workforce to deliver on those challenges, which means you need to ensure they are engaged, educated and empowered to be able to collaborate effectively, change quickly and innovate regularly!

This masterclass will help you understand how to use LEAN methods to start that journey and deliver real value by harnessing the power of your own people to successfully deliver those challenging operational goals, whilst also creating an inclusive and collaborative culture.

We will demonstrate how our LEAN framework provides the technical skills required to create an army of practical problem solvers, whilst also pro-actively supporting the creation of a positive mental health environment where your workforce can thrive!

Who should attend?
