Lean is not about implementing tools, but its about the people and their journey to change!
Lean principles, tools and improvements techniques should not be used as a set of paradigm, but as a guideline to change your way of working. Radical and sustainable process improvement, wether you call it lean or not, is not a question of following a fixed set of rules but guiding people to see, help them to improve the proces and visualise the results.
Introducing and implementing the lean philosophy, in a basic and "down-to-earth" way, with small, recognizable and clear steps.
Develop and use a vision as a guideline to change the way of working.
Work with the people, help and guide them to improve their own proces; in a way real improvement is realised, at a pace they can cope with. On the other hand, challenge to cross boundaries and do things in an other way.
