Each enhanced term contains a ‘Notes for Leaders’ section specifically for management. Lean information in a way that works for you! (We’ve even prepared The Companion Starter Kit for your convenience.)
An online Lean Dictionary. Some of the terms specifically address Lean management issues; many of the general terms also include specific points for Lean leaders.
