Lean Enterprise Management Concerns: By Brian Lean November 2005
The biggest obstacle we encounter in the 'boardroom' is the fact that the benefits of lean processes require a plan of action that initially seems counter-intuitive. As one might expect, since major decisions directly affecting the interest of all stakeholders fall on the shoulders of upper management, the decision to make that leap of faith to lean is difficult. Top management can not be blamed for being hesitant. We understand this concern and hesitation. This is why we prefer our first meeting at your facility to be with your management personnel.
In fact, we are willing to provide a consultation / info session with your upper management personnel free of charge. All we require is reimbursement of minimal travel expenses to your facility. This is not intended to be a sales pitch. Rather, we want your management personnel to understand not only the benefits, but the basics of what is to be expected during a lean transformation. Given this, there are no surprises. You know up front how this will affect your organization. You are also prepared for the many changes required to become a truly successful lean enterprise.
For numerous reasons it is in everyone's best interest if we address the concerns of upper management personnel first. It is important to prepare you for the magnitude of this transformation. It is important to discuss the new demands that will be placed on everyone in your organization. During this info session we will share with you the typical results of a lean transformation.
Fully explaining logistics, operations, challenges, and rewards up front establishes the foundation of trust. We will not candy-coat our presentation. Anyone who states that a lean transformation is simple wants nothing more than another client; another paycheck. This is merely an opportunity for you to gather information. If you make the decision to allow us the opportunity to improve your organization we can then begin discussing terms. If after our info session you decide not to use our services that is entirely fine and you are not obligated.
We simply feel it is best that you have as much information as possible before you make a choice. If you are interested in inviting us to your facility for an info session please fill out the form located at our contact us page. We will reply within 24 hours, 7 days a week.
If you are interested in taking advantage of lean concepts in your organization please contact us.
