Getting serious about lean

Lean is a journey of discovery and learning. The lean tools are not manufacturing best practices to be implemented but discovery tools that help guide us in discovering our misconceptions and in correcting them. Lean journeys are filled with successes, dead-ends and backsliding. However, persevering on the journey leads to great satisfaction. Learning lean is a personal journey, but cannot be taken alone and how far you go on this journey is determined by how serious you are about learning.

Over the last 10 years Eivind have researched and studied many organizations across Scandinavia with leaders trying to transform themselves and their organization with lean. In his presentation he will point to some lessons from this research that might help other practitioners and leaders on their own journeys.
