Essentials: The Lean Journey... Have we got it all wrong?
In this Essentials, we look at the journal paper, "The Lean Journey: Have we got it all wrong?", which was published in the Journal of Total Quality Management & Business Excellence. The authors look at “lean” implementation and note how many organizations have struggled to thoroughly implement and reap the benefits from it over the past few decades. They question our understanding and approaches that many have attempted with less than desired success and wonder if we have it all wrong.
They conduct a study of one organization in particular that has been able to reap some significant benefits from dedicated lean application and draw some conclusions that may be helpful for leaders to evaluate and alter their approach.
