  1. Provides a holistic framework for implementing a Lean Management System so as to enhance your Lean leadership effectiveness.
  2. Provides guidance on the methods and tools of a Lean Management System.
  3. Provides a mechanism to develop and sustain a Lean culture in your organization.


Most Lean organizations are missing a critical ingredient: a Lean management system to sustain it. Lean organizations are mostly focused on finding waste and eliminating them using Lean tools. However, to sustain Lean practices, we need a Lean Management System. And, Lean cultures grow from robust Lean management systems.

A Lean Management System is the system that allows you to deliver customer value through proper support and leadership to those who are closest to the process (customers and process owners). The system consists of four key elements: Leader Standard Work, Visual Control, Daily Accountability and Leadership Discipline.

The Lean Management System will help Lean leaders such as team leaders, supervisors, department managers, value stream managers and senior executives to improve leadership effectiveness based on Lean best practices.

This presentation shows you how to implement a sustainable, successful transformation by developing a culture that has your stakeholders throughout the organizational chart involved and invested in the outcome. It teaches you how to implement the four key elements of the Lean Management System to enhance your effectiveness as a Lean transformation leader.
