Lean Misconceptions : Why Many Lean Initiatives Fail and How You Can Avoid the Mistakes Hardback

Description

It has been reported that about 70% of performance-improvement initiatives fail to achieve desired results.

The primary causes are unrealistic expectations regarding effort and results and too much focus on short-term improvements instead of long-term capability building.

Too many consultants and organizations stress the tools and the results they can achieve without considering the long-term implications.

Success relies on focusing on both short-term gains and long-term culture change - That is, using the tools as the mechanism for change versus the objective of the change.

Lean Misconceptions: Why Many Lean Initiatives Fail and How You Can Avoid the Mistakes focuses on continuous improvement as well as the tools organizations can use to achieve long-term growth.

Readers will gain new knowledge while also challenging their peers, seniors, subordinates, and their own thinking on Lean.
