One of the key aspects of Lean principles is the position that a management team takes during an implementation process. They need to realize that a Lean Management System is a critical element to ensure a successful implementation. It is necessary to create a pro-active infrastructure that can support the right culture and sustain the improvements over the long term.
Too many companies are applying lean principles as a quick fix and then wondering why things start going south after a few months. It is estimated that over 90% of companies that implement a lean program will fail within two years of starting their lean journey.

I was doing some research onÂ YouTubeÂ and found this video that was posted byÂ The Lean Enterprise Academy. It is a presentation by John Shook, CEO of the Lean Enterprise Institute. He is talking about “The Future of Lean: Deepening the Fundamentals: embedding the practice of Lean” at the Lean Summit 2011 that was an event that was run by the Lean Enterprise Academy in the UK. I am sure the information in this video will be very helpful if you are thinking about implementing lean in your own business.
Lean management system is a critical element for sure!
