TPS president Bill Hanover encourages top managers to abandon destructive, dictator management styles and practices to create a Lean Manufacturing Culture. “Mere Mortal Managers,” a series of 3 articles, helps managers effectively lead their Lean transition.

Real world strategies are proposed to help managers “Self-Correct,” “Prepare,” and “Execute” the necessary transformation to Lean Manufacturing and World Class Excellence.

As a matter of survival all companies must become Lean if they are to remain profitable whether they compete in local or global markets. Customers demand absolute quality, on-time delivery, very short lead-times, and numerous product style choices with uncompromising expectations. Lean manufacturing enables companies to meet these demands.

Senior managers leading the way through a Lean transformation are riddled with flaws and inadequacies making it difficult to win the hearts, minds, and efforts of their employees. Managers are asked to take a good hard look in the mirror as they become the type of leaders that can effectively take the company and staff where they need to go: Lean.

Lean principles are not exclusive to manufacturing. Every manager can benefit from the practical advice in “Mere Mortal Managers” and apply the tools of Lean in virtually any company. Managers must become “Lean Leaders” if they are to effectively eliminate wasteful practices and facilitate process improvements.
