    Lean manufacturing - moving past the numbers

    It's likely going to take more than numbers to get your team on board and excited about lean manufacturing. 

    The Fabricator said, "If being lean were all about the technicalities, you could rule the shop with an iron fist and everyone would fall in line. But successful lean organizations understand that they must engage the entire workforce. It’s about winning over hearts and minds, and this doesn’t come by ruling with an iron fist. It comes by showing respect and humility."

    With all of this progress and change, don't forget to listen to your employees. Take time to hear their concerns and their suggestions, that way you know how the changes are being received. 

    With that respect and humility you can make positive change!
