Leading With Obeya – Fundamentals Training (2days)

Improve the effectiveness of your leadership team

Obeya, management hype of the moment. What is it, how does it work, and how can it help your organization collaborate more effectively and make better decisions?

What is Obeya?

Obeya means “big room” with everything that matters on the wall for learning and making better decisions together. It originated at Toyota in the late 1990s when they used this way of working for the first Prius. But beware, it’s not all about what’s on the wall, the team’s way of thinking and acting matters to a greater extent if you really want to work more effectively at a leadership level.
In two days we will take you into the Leadership with Obeya method.


This training takes you through the background, visualisations and principles necessary to understand and use Obeya effectively. For this training we will be using a life-size (virtual and physical) demo Obeya that gives participants the opportunity to practice on the basis of practical examples.

You go home with:
• Insight into the principles behind Obeya
• Knowledge and skills to use Obeya yourself
• What it takes to get started with Obeya
• Practical examples of Obeya according to the Leadership with Obeya method
