COURSE DESCRIPTION

This course is taught in Swedish.

How are you a good leader in times of rapid change? And what can good leadership contribute? In this web-based course you will have the opportunity to work on these questions, discuss them and be inspired.

What will you know after the course and what difference can the knowledge make to your organisation?

  • Understand and reason about Lean leadership models
  • Describe how leadership, improvement and sustainability interact and influence the success of organisations and leaders
  • Translate models and methods to your own situation and business, and be able to concretise these in an action plan

Course outline

  • The course is web-based (Zoom) and we meet 12 times of 2 hours each. The examination is 3 hours.
  • The lecturers are both researchers and practitioners, partly from KTH and partly from the private sector. We think that dialogue is important during both lectures and group work.
  • The meetings normally also include a presentation of the assignment from the previous session.
  • Great importance is attached to dialogue during both lectures and group work, including those linked to homework assignments.
  • The book LedarStegen by Bengt Savén (ISBN: 9789187817434) is used to link theory parts and exercises.
  • Course literature is paid for by the participant.
  • The course is examined with a diploma through a report and oral presentation. Attendance is required for at least 9 out of 12 sessions.
  • Maximum number of participants is 20.

Target group

Those in a managerial position (managers, project and improvement leaders), in both the private and public sectors. You are expected to have a basic knowledge of lean and be experienced in the role of a leader.
