Keynote at the 2015 Smidig Conference in Oslo, Norway on November 2, 2015.
While the first papers on Post-Lean Thinking were released a few months earlier, in June of that year, this keynote was the first one where Frode discussed Post-Lean and post-industrial management ideas. Back then the name of the company was still the Lean Systems Institute. We have kept this talk here not just for sentimental reasons, but also to have something to look back at for perspective. A lot happened in the years following, both in terms of how we told the story, and also with respect to the management tools and practices we developed. One notable change, for example, is that back in late 2015, the value stack model did not have the agent layer! That was added soon after.
