What Can You Expect?

The key question for LeanSummitCZSK 2021 is: HOW? How companies develop their healthy company culture, maximise efficiency and productivity, deliver an operating data-driven and customer-focused model, manage changes, digitize processes and improve their quality? What have they succeeded in and what have they failed at? What is their personal experience and authentic leadership?  

We have developed a modern format to support knowledge sharing, experience based learning
and networking.

Coach for organizational transformation at Vaillant Group / Volunteer IPMA

Marek's main job is to design systems that develop behaviors supporting the culture of continuous improvement. He coaches managers and coordinates the development of LEAN philosophy at industrial plants of the Vaillant Group in Slovakia and England. Marek, as a certified coach and consultant, is specialized in transforming organizations through individuals. He firmly believes that the wealth of an organization is hidden in the potential of its employees.


What is the role of a LEAN focused coach? What do they expect from you by being a coach while being a manager at the same time? The word coaching is used more and more often in the world of LEAN. I even came across the opinion that without coaching, it is not possible to implement LEAN within an organization. Do you share the same opinion? Discover what is coaching and what is not, what is LEAN focused coaching and how it looks like in practice.

Milan Murcko

CEO at YIT Slovakia a.s.

YIT Slovakia has been on the Slovak market for a decade now. Over the past ten years, the company’s CEO, Milan Murcko, has managed to transform a local construction firm into a construction development company, introduce Bratislava to the culture of architectural design competitions, and implement a number of truly unique projects, such as STEIN2, ZWIRN, Pradiareň, NUPPU and TAMMI, just to mention a few. Milan Murcko and his 185 employees are trying to make their construction projects more efficient using the LEAN Construction method. Being convinced that ‘good management’ means ‘less management’ he leads his team in that direction. Milan Murcko places the cooperative potential of people above their individual qualities and views the business from a long-term perspective. Instead of measuring success through IS units or profitability, YIT Slovakia uses the Net Promoter Score (NPS) indicator designed to measure how customers are satisfied with the final product and how likely they would recommend the company to the people they know.

The result of his work was an increase in profit in the order of hundreds of percent, sales in the order of tens of percent.

Due to the advancing digitization of processes in companies, there is a need to have new competencies. This is one of the main challenges today. People in companies should already have at least a basic understanding of what process digitalization is, basic information about robotics and automation, what 3D printing, virtual reality, and more can offer. That is why, since 2017, Filip has been involved in education and consulting in the field of digitalization, robotics and automation.
