The constringent transition and adoption to lean manufacturing is hard enough, but coupled with the complexity of keeping production and ROI stable, that just takes it to a whole another level. Hands on service providers are an absolutely essential facet of this metamorphosis, combining both expertise and industry knowledge to attain maximum compatibility with existing system; without compromising on the optimization factor.
As a cross industry methodology the pervasiveness of the lean technique is never over emphasized. The potential move toward it thus requires participants from all areas of the private and public spectrum, including healthcare, banking, retail, IT and government, as well as the traditional areas of manufacturing and supply chain. Furthermore, with rapidly evolving technology, shifting business models and intense global competition, many organizations are realizing the need for significant and broad-based change. This deep degree of organizational change is being referred to more and more as ‘transformation’, with key executive roles of Transformational Leaders being designated. The subsequent trend is true integration, where the synergies between the two approaches are fully leveraged and people highly skilled in both methodologies are utilized, though there may still remain ‘master’-level expertise residing within separate individuals.
