According to a recent Industry Week survey of companies that have attempted a lean initiative, 72% reported unsatisfactory results. Many organizations hire lean experts for internal implementation or use consultants. Unfortunately, many of these experts focus on lean knowledge that was available before the Training Within Industry program was reintroduced in the United States in 2002, and before Mike Rother’s 2010 publication of “Toyota Kata.” Without these two critical pieces of the lean puzzle, most organizations are doomed to failure.
Find out why and how these two critical components provide management the skills necessary for any lean initiative.
