  • 1. The Lean Way is led by Ankit Patel. Ankit’s personal vision is to help people, organizations and communities flourish by using the proven thinking and methodology associated with Lean Transformations. Prior to founding The Lean Way Consulting, he was a Lean consultant with computer giant Dell, where he helped guide strategic planning at its multi-billion-dollar manufacturing, distribution, and re-manufacturing plants in Lebanon, TN. As part of his job, he coached plant executives, facilitated Kaizen events and trained Lean leaders at all levels of the organization. Equally at home in healthcare, he has also worked with the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic, where he helped improve culture and processes in its internationally ranked Heart and Vascular Department. Clients praise Ankit for his stabilizing influence during times of conflict and his balanced, calm leadership through all phases of Lean Transformations and other company change. He holds a Master of Science degree in Positive Organizational Development from Case Western Reserve University, as well as a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Engineering from Georgia Tech. He lives with his wife in the greater Atlanta, GA.

  • 6.

  • 7. TheLeanWayConsulting.com Why? •Developing a Strategy for Lean •Effectively executing the strategyStrategy •Moves too slow •A few at the top trying to convince others to adoptMomentum •“Not my job” or “Not real work” perception •Focus on compliance vs. commitment •Focus on attitudes and procedures vs actions and outcomes •Natural immune response occurs Behaviors
  • 8. TheLeanWayConsulting.com Tools  Cultural Analysis  Project Success Scorecard  Rate of Change Formula
  • 9. TheLeanWayConsulting.com •True information kept secret at times •Sharing information my harm or help me •Decisions made based on “what’s best for me” •Information does not flow and is kept oneself •Feeling of sharing the information will not make a difference •Decisions based on what top management wants and everyone else follows. •Information valued only from a chosen few •Decisions made by a chosen few •Information shared openly and freely •Decisions made through sharing viewpoints Collaborative Hero Based Political Command and Control
  • 10. TheLeanWayConsulting.com Examples 1. Supervisor publicly ridicules line workers, line workers don’t mention say anything during production meetings, and any feedback is dismissed by the supervisor 2. Example conversations 1. Manager: “I can trust Rob, he’ll get this done” 2. Consultant: “Rob is overwhelmed and you can give this to Carol who seems capable” 3. Manager: “I’ll ask Rob what he thinks about Carol and if she’s capable since he’s mentoring her.” 3. CEO travels for sales calls regularly and is not in the office for day to day operations. When she meets with her direct reports 1x1 she will hear about what others executives are doing wrong and what is going on behind her back. 4. Surgeons, nurses, administrators, technicians, support functions, and vendors are brought into the discussion of how we can decrease the wait time for patients waiting for a special surgery. Rank is left at the door and there is open and clear communication with trust amongst all parties.
