We have all seen managers with the best intentions launch new initiatives that were supposed to be the wave of the future only to see them fizzle out after a few weeks or months. Lean initiatives are no different. Many organizations have tried Lean and either abandon it completely or don’t take it very far. So what makes the difference between companies that tried Lean and those that are leading the pack? A successful launch of Lean is in some respects like getting lean with one’s weight.

Instead, it is about: • Focusing people’s efforts creating value for the customer and eliminating waste. • Speeding up the operation by eliminating idle time created by paperwork and bureaucracy.< Less

There can be thousands of integration points as information flows along a value stream. As a result it is almost impossible to understand in detail how a change to one part of a value stream will impact the rest of the system-wide value streams of the organization. The Agile and Lean office approach use a program of continuous performance improvement. This approach does not try to accomplish too much at once and risk complete failure, but to make an incremental change to a value stream, wait for the system to settle down, fully understand the system-wide impact of the changes, and then decide what new change to make.< Less
