You Can’t Become Lean If You Only Eat Fried Food!!
If you want to lose weight by eating organic, low calorie food but…. you deep-fry everything, you will not only stay overweight, you will become sick. However, most American manufacturers do just this with regard to lean. They want to become lean organizations but they do not want to change the way they manage.
Success with lean can only be achieved by implementing lean principles through-out the entire organization. We must develop a truly Lean Management System so that every aspect of the company is working in unison around lean thinking and actions.
