How Lean is your Lean Quality Program?

Avoid quality program bureaucracy that can sap logistics productivity and increase costs

By · September 23, 2016

Today, “Lean” is an industry, with University curriculums, formal certification programs, and thousands of consultants offering “Lean in a box.”

The management approach that seeks to eliminate waste has become institutionalized, with all the attendant bureaucracy – meetings, paperwork, reporting and budgets. The danger here is that, instead of having Lean work for us, we become slaves to the Lean bureaucracy. As a result, productivity plummets and costs mount without an acceptable ROI.

Lean programs are not inherently inefficient. It’s all in the implementation. We simply need to examine our own Lean Six Sigma programs to ensure that the management of such efforts doesn’t interfere with getting the work done.

This eBook reviews some ways in which the management of Lean programs can get in the way.
