Are You Driving Your Lean Management System to Maximize Value?

Your investments in lean and operational excellence should be having a measurable and significant impact on your margins and earnings. If not, it’s time to take a hard look at the effectiveness of your lean management system.

Lean Management System to Maximize Value

The strength of your lean management system—communication, priorities, metrics, and behavior—determines your company’s improvement culture and the depth of its impact.

To maximize your return on investment, your company’s lean management system —your everyday management practices and behavior— has to support your improvement efforts. Many manufacturers have adopted lean tools without embracing the corresponding management practices and behaviors that drive change and consistently deliver results that matter to the business.

This management briefing looks at what it takes to create a culture of excellence through leadership engagement and a behavior-based management system. We explore the management practices and behavior that provide the foundation for steady performance improvements and meaningful return on investment.

We then talked to the operations leaders at Carlisle FoodService Products, Inc. to get direct insights to their priorities, behaviors, challenges and best practices for instilling a lean management system that engages associates and drives results.
