Lean is not about tools. Lean is a human system. It makes sense then for Human Resources to play a central role in creating a lean culture.
Yet HR professionals often find themselves on the sidelines to their organization’s lean journey. And when organizations fail that journey, a lot of blame is put on the tools used.
But the failure isn’t from a lack of the right tools; organizations fail because they lack the right behaviors.
Through a structure of Learn – Apply – Reflect, there are tactics that, when put together properly, can ready organizations for lean. And by engaging business partners in the process, HR can have a major impact on making the journey to a lean culture a successful one.
