 Why Do You Need To Know About Radical Lean Transformation?

Starting out on your lean journey can be a harrowing experience, and it is not for the faint of heart! Everyone will tell you that the application of lean principles is easy. This is true conceptually, however in the real world there are unseen variables that can interfere with the process. These unseen variables are usually have an emotional origin and are driven by opinion. They are not based on factual data but often have a far reaching impact on the success or failure of any lean implementation process! Here is a series of three short videos explaining the typical lean transformation jouruney:


Lean Transformation Starts With Education!

A company starts their Lean Transformation by educating their employees to understand lean principles and how to apply them to improve their workplace. An important aspect of any Lean Transformation is improvement and this requires change. Employees, supervisors, and the management team must all be on the same page as the change is being implemented. Here is our Radical Lean Transformation and Implementation Roadmap:

Change must be managed, it does not occur by chance. Lean Transformation will often require a paradigm shift  in the organizational culture, and this can be stressful if it is not managed in the right way. A management team must ensure that the right information is being given to their employees at the right time to allow them to understand what is happening and why it is necessary to do it.

To get you started on your lean journey, you can download a free copy of our Lean Assessment Tool. This tool will help you take the first action which is to quality and quantify the current status of your organization’s processes to generate a baseline value. All future improvements will be assessed using the same tool to determine their value, and this will be compared with the original baseline value to determine if your processes are actually improving or not!
