In my work as a consultant and trainer of managers and teams, salve I run into different aspects of management in general and change management in particular. Here are a few versions of Lean:
In this culture ALL buzz is in. All managers know the exact terminology. Trouble is – no-one really LIVES them.
Mean Lean is a sibling of the Lean Theatre – but for worse: Staff, sales who opted in for lean are blamed with Lean/SixSigma tools. ”These things work in other places – but hot here. Hence – you must be doing it wrong!”
Experienced any of them? I hope not – Bbut if you did – how did it all happen? Were there any alternatives? How did you handle it? And – knowing what you know today – what would you do differently?
Together – we can learn!
