Improving Your Job is Part of Your Job (Principle)

Basic Section Information

Most people go to work to do their job. When a company becomes focused on continuous improvement, that is no longer enough.

The true turning point of a company on its Lean journey is when employees begin to take personal responsibility for making their own work better. Obviously this means that managers need to let go of the feeling that they are the ones that dictate how work is done.


CI Transformation Principles are the guiding rules that apply to all companies that are trying to make changes. They are similar to natural laws. Learn more about how principles guide your Lean journey in our entry on ‘Principles and Values.’
