A true lean transformation requires engagement and understanding across the organization including leadership, middle management, and front-line workers.
Lean Transformation is a systematic approach to acquiring and applying a shared way of thinking within an organization. It does not start with a list of tools to change the way things are done. It starts with a change in the way everyone in a company thinks about what they do, how they do it, and why it matters. It starts with an open mind and proceeds from there to permeate and change the whole business from the boardroom to the last link in the supply chain.
