Event Description

Description :
Luddism, or resistance to efficiency improvements, as a frequent stumbling block for lean manufacturing initiatives. Luddism, work-to-rule, and soldiering (marking time) all are similar, and all result directly from workers' fears that automation or other efficiency improvements will result in layoffs. This webinar will show what management needs to do to eliminate Luddism and gain the worker buy-in and engagement that can make rather than break lean manufacturing and Lean Six Sigma initiatives.
Objective of the webinar :
Attendees will, upon completion of the webinar, be able to take the following material back to their workplaces to gain the kind of workforce engagement that once made the Ford Motor Company a leading pioneer of what we now know as the Toyota production system.

Areas Covered in the Session :
Luddism originated as a misguided reaction to efficiency improvements that people believed would put laborers out of work.
Management sometimes aggravated this perception, however, by proving the Luddites right.
Lean manufacturing pioneers like Frank Gilbreth, Frederick Winslow Taylor, and Henry Ford proved unequivocally, however, that efficiency improvements are prerequisites rather than obstacles to high-wage employment.

Who Will Benefit:
labor leaders from all manufacturing industries.
labor leaders from all service industries.

About Speaker:
William A. Levinson, P.E., FASQ, CFPIM, is the owner of Levinson Productivity Systems PC. He holds professional certifications from the American Society for Quality, APICS, and Society of Manufacturing Engineers.
