“Lean Management” is not as much about finding the “right” answer as it is about asking the “right” questions and taking disciplined risks to sustainably improve business outcomes.
Having spent years working as in-house senior executives at world-class companies recognized for their ‘lean culture’, we understand that for lean to have sustainable break-though results companies must integrate the ‘technique’ of lean with the “culture” of lean.
This means moving beyond training programs, lean-certified internal business partners, kaizens etc., and developing a culture that focuses every day on the critical few strategic business opportunities, understanding performance challenges and continuously sharing lessons learned.
Our Situation Talent-Fit Framework provides the foundation for ensuring that companies integrate lean skills into appropriate people systems (selection,on-boarding, appraisal, development, compensation etc) that are critical to shaping a culture that enables break-through results.
Our Lean Culture Blueprint helps create a collaborative, team-oriented, customer-focused environment, by focusing on selecting and developing leaders who are more likely to behave in ways that are consistent with fostering environments that enable lean management.
