    Transforming a Management Culture

    Thoughts on: Where Lean Went Wrong – A Historical Perspective

    I believe that companies that say they are attempting to become lean fail to do so in the most important ways. I do believe most efforts result in improvement but usually are fairly limited by the existing management system and refusal to really change much.

    More than "lean failing" I would say transforming to a different management culture fails. Saying lean fails makes it seem to me that what a lean management system was in use and failed which is not really the case it doesn't seem to me.

    I wrote about these ideas on my blog: Why Use Lean if So Many Fail To Do So Effectively

    and discussed them in this podcast on Building Organizational Capability.
