The Key to a Successful Lean Journey? Leadership!

2

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:

The Key to a Successful Lean Journey? Leadership!

Kurt talks about some of my favorite topics in leading lean. He focuses on 4 key roles of a lean leader:

  1. Removing ambiguity by teaching the organization to structure and standardize its activities;
  2. Reinforcing and working on the system by helping people identify and solve problems;
  3. Constantly setting the vision and ideal state… which creates healthy tension in the system; and
  4. Practicing new learnings through application, application, application.

I encourage you to enjoy Kurt's article and experiences.
