Case Study: Privately Held Manufacturing Company
Type of Company: Privately held Manufacturing Company
The Director of Manufacturing for the company recognized he had an upcoming succession planning issue within his organization. Many of the managers on the production floor were nearing retirement. Much of the current practice of management revolved around “command and control.” The company recognized that they needed to develop the next group of managers. They identified a group of supervisors that showed potential for management and decided to put them through an LMI Effective Leadership Development (ELD) Program.
The Goal: LMI Chicago’s goal for the program and process was to help the company identify who from this group would embrace the opportunity to learn and develop in order to be candidates for upcoming positions.
The Result: Although the LMI program required incremental work for each participant, the participants embraced the opportunity to learn, develop, apply, and incorporate what they learned through LMI Chicago. It was determined that 8 of the 9 participants would be viable candidates to fill future positions.
As a result of participating in the program, there was an additional return on investment of over 3-to-1. These returns came in the forms of reduced set-up times, faster cycle times, and reduced waste.
Because of the results in the first class, the company immediately enrolled the next nine participants in the LMI ELD program and achieved nearly equal results.Back to Case Studies
