For the past 2 ½ years, Carl Mason has been part of a journey to change the culture at Boeing Helena. The destination; “the team by themselves” (Management Teams, Cross Functional Teams, and Functional Teams), “using systematic problem solving to improve the work they do towards the achievement of targets and goals, when and only when the company culture is the reason the improvement occurs.” In this session, you will hear the approach they have taken to build trust and engagement for all roles at Boeing Helena. A few highlights:
- How we are removing burdens and derailers from employees across the site
- How we are enabling everyone to be successful
- See an example of one of our team’s journey and their successes
