A friend of mine, Kurt Woolley at Intel, has written an article for Industry Week that is quite popular. I thought I would share it here. It’s title is:
Kurt talks about some of my favorite topics in leading lean. He focuses on 4 key roles of a lean leader:
- Removing ambiguity by teaching the organization to structure and standardize its activities;
- Reinforcing and working on the system by helping people identify and solve problems;
- Constantly setting the vision and ideal state… which creates healthy tension in the system; and
- Practicing new learnings through application, application, application.
I encourage you to enjoy Kurt’s article and experiences.
