Programme genesis

Top-performing organizations around the world are focused on execution excellence. The reason is simple: The ability to manage value creation processes efficiently and effectively— without waste—provides a competitive advantage.

To fully realize these benefits, companies must identify and educate leaders who can learn the concepts and tools of value stream management; employee inclusion in problem-solving; waste reduction; and capability building and innovation. Individuals who acquire these skills become the lean leaders that their organizations need to help drive change, improve processes, build customer satisfaction, and enhance the company’s competitive position.

S.P. Jain Institute of Management and Research in collaboration with the Ohio State University brings to you one of a kind new age Certificate Program in Execution Excellence that goes beyond training. Each participant identifies a challenge or a problem and the same is diagnosed during pre-programme selection, the participant along with his coach and supervisor works on the problem solution. This is a proven approach to help drive participants’ comprehension and application of the learning. It also provides a solid return on investment for the company.

Programme goals

A key part of this course is a live project that each participant will work on, with a coach, throughout the programme. The process begins with the participant identifying a challenge or a problem area they will address in their organization. A discussion on the problem area will include a faculty member from the programme, the participant along with his/her supervisor or manager, and ideally an executive sponsor from their organization. The intent of this discussion is to ensure that the selected project:
