Destroying the Six Barriers to Lean

Destroying The Six Barriers to Lean

Eliminating barriers to leanEveryone that has ever tried to implement Lean thinking with a new group of people has inevitably come up against resistance to the new thinking. It doesn't matter the industry or the level within the organisation, or the education level or, to some extent, the existing organisational culture. The barriers will emerge, and will emerge from the same root causes, over and over again. What are the root causes? I find they can all be broken down to six barriers, all based on people's fear about Lean.  They fear Lean will:
  • De-humanize them or their work
  • De-skill their work, and therefore them
  • De-value their hard-earned knowledge about their work
  • De-emphasize their skills and creativity in solving problems related to their work
  • De-crease their happiness with their work
  • De-stabilise their position or employment in their work
Let's fight fire with fire - join your peers to share your methods to  De-stroy these fears that createDestroying barriers to lean barriers to lean. Share your best practices, lessons learned, and secrets to employee engagement. How do you convince people that Lean, done correctly, won't cause any of these things and often causes the exact opposite to happen? Don't miss your chance to learn helpful tricks from others with the same problems you face!
