Thinking Outside the Toolbox

Many organizations have embarked on a Lean Journey only to get caught in the “Lean Toolbox” paradigm. The logic of this paradigm is as follows: If I train people in a core set of Lean Tools and Techniques and challenge them to find improvement projects and follow a structured problem solving approach then results will follow. This approach often disappoints and rarely takes the organization to a new level of performance

"We have been trying to achieve this for two years. With this approach we completed it in four months"
