Interesting NWLEAN Discussion
I'm a member of the Yahoo Group called NWLEAN, where there's often some good discussion about Lean. The question was posed:
“Why does Lean struggle to take hold in the U.S.?”
I've often said that Lean doesn't fail or struggle…. or succeed…. people, leaders, or organizations struggle or succeed.
Let's not blame Lean. The question needs to be turned around… “Why do U.S. organizations struggle to fully utilize Lean thinking and Lean methods?”
Of course, I don't think those struggles are uniquely American either, although some of the underlying root causes might be different than other countries.
