Why implementing Lean (too) often fails?
Excuses usually put on the table are:
1) The lack of management buy-in
2) The wrong Lean tools or techniques chosen without any correlation with the organization’s performance
3) The lack of will.
But then, what about management skills AND guidance?
75-80% of managers believe effective training is critical to project success, skill levels linked to business value yield a 10% increase in productivity.
Increase your chance for success when implementing Lean by assessing first your manager’s skills and their ability for guidance!
Skills don’t come out of the air, they are about development, and it takes time and effort.
Is it time to assess manager’s skills?
