Over the 16 years that we've been providing support to organizations at nearly every stage of the Lean journey, leadership has consistently emerged as the single most important determinant of success. Those organizations with strong leadership engagement soar, while those who don't fail to experience significant transformation. These are the materials for Karen's third (and final) of three webinars on Lean Leadership. In this webinar, Karen reviewed the system of Lean principles, management practices, and tools, and then focuses on the role of leaders in understanding their organization's value streams, setting the strategic direction for value stream transformation, and monitoring the cycle of improvement.
