Let me tell you a story that led to my Lean vision…
Way back when I was a manager, my teams and I sprinted all day long trying to hit our targets and meet our customers’ needs. My employees worked incredibly hard, but I knew that if their Lean skills were better developed, all of our jobs would be a lot easier.
Continuous improvement training was easier said than done, though, because we were always busy ‘fighting fires’ and dealing with the tidal wave of tasks that needed to be completed each day.

- how Lean impacts relationships between employees and managers
