Management System 

What management system and leadership behaviors are required?

Developing a Daily Management System and solid processes regarding Leader Standard Work are inportant parts of any sustainable improvement effort. The use of Visual Controls allows for abnormalities to be easily identified and waste to be eliminated from the work environment by the team at every opportunity.

Lean leaders ensure team goals support the vision, they remove barriers, develop  communication channels for information to flow, facilitate ‘Root Cause’ Analysis (problem solving) and should be a technical resources within an organization. 

In traditional leadership goals are set by the leader, the leader makes the plans and controls the information. These leaders are often the sole problem solver (hero) and consider themselves the technical expert.

Without rigor in Leader Standard Work all continuous process improvement efforts will be marginal at best.
