When is it time for lean "lite"?

by Jamie Flinchbaugh, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Lean

Many of the frequent LeanBlog readers will know that I have been a regular guest blogger on LeanBlog.org. I am not in any way ending that relationship as I have enjoyed my collaboration with Mark Graban which is many years old now.

However, to reach a somewhat different audience, I will be sharing some of my stories and advice on Kevin Meyer’s Evolving Excellence blog. You will find posts here as well as at Evolving Excellence from me but I will try to keep everyone informed as new content is posted. Here is my first post, When is it time for lean “lite”?

    Thank you! Thank you! Finally a lean practitioner who says it's OK to be lean "lite". Up until now all that I've ever read is that an organization is 100% lean (ie the culture, the tools, the people, etc.) or it's nothing. There is no "in-between", no lean "lite". Anything less than 100% is meaningless.
