Transform your organization
Cutting Costs in not an answer. Technology is only part of the answer. The answer is in making the organization work differently and develop a new culture.
What is Culture
A set of principles and behaviors expected, supported and reinforced at all levels of the organization by the largest number of people.
Lean is about building a company improvement culture, in which the expected behaviors are:
- Think in terms of customers;
- Create Value along the whole value Chain;
- Make it visible;
- Work together;
- Create standards and improve standards.
This requires building teamwork and creating the conditions for sustainability through a structured leadership long term focus.

Declaring Victory Too Soon
