Building A Lean Culture by Joe Perillo

  1. 1. The Importance of Culture in a Lean Transformation <br />Lean Transformation Approach<br />11/4/2008<br />1<br />Created by Joe Perillo<br />
  2. 2. “Culture Shock”<br />My approach to teaching a group that is either just starting out or is a senior level manager, is to help them understand what they will encounter when beginning the lean journey.<br />They need to understand that lean transformation will bring on a culture shock when changing from the way things are to a lean environment. <br />11/4/2008<br />2<br />Created by Joe Perillo<br />
  3. 3. Changing the Culture<br />As you begin your lean journey you will encounter two realities when taking on lean transformation. <br />One involves the physical changes that help reduce waste and the other involves the changing of the existing culture. <br />Experienced lean practitioners understand that making physical changes in the reduction of waste is much easer that changing the cultural landscape of an organization. <br />Sustainability is the key to long term effectiveness and the only way we can achieve sustainability is by changing the culture.<br />Creating a new standard of how people approach a challenge or a problem even how they work . The change in culture also applies to how people approach each other and how they communicate. <br />Measuring performance will change from individual to team based.<br />A continuous improvement culture requires more than just going through the motions of a physical plant layout or process changes, it requires a change in how we approach everything we do. <br />11/4/2008<br />3<br />Created by Joe Perillo<br />
  4. 4. “Is There a Better Way”<br />One of the eight waste is the underutilization of people. In a traditional operation the culture usually pushes the ideas from management down to the front lines. In a lean culture the ideas are coming from the experts who do the job every day.<br />Management is responsible to create an environment that allows for ideas to flow freely in a non threatening environment even when mistakes are made. <br />Management is responsible for creating a culture that drives the entire organization to ask the question “Is there a better way”<br />Once we begin asking the questions “Is there a better way” it is the responsibility of management to create the vision and support all efforts that will help the organization succeed. <br />11/4/2008<br />4<br />Created by Joe Perillo<br />
