The key to any successful Lean transformation is people because they are the source of continuous improvement. The key to engaging people in continuous improvement is respecting people. This means, among other things, that no harm must come to people as a result of continuous improvement.
People and the “Respect for People” principle are the focus of this blog, as well as the intersection between the two principles, “Continuous Improvement” and “Respect for People.”
This blog is a continuation of my focus on Lean leadership that began in the mid-1990s. My first efforts to decode the mysteries of Lean leadership appeared in two papers published in 1998: “Continuous Personal Improvement” and “Lean Behaviors.” These seminal papers set me on a path that has resulted in the unique books and training services that you see today.
I hope you find my blog helpful in expanding your knowledge and daily practice of Lean leadership and Lean management.
