In this webinar we will discuss some of the common challenges with improving organizational performance and how to overcome them using the Lean Systems Framework (LSF). Traditional Lean Management fails to address several factors that significantly affect organizational performance. Such factors include knowledge management, organization architecture, product architecture, and cultural challenges.
The Lean Systems Framework is an extensible and integrated framework of models and methods based on Systems Thinking and Toyota’s Lean methodology. It provides a richer way to describe organizations and embodies techniques for ensuring that organizational learning yields quantifiable business value. The LSF is the result of eight years of field experience, primarily in the technology sector, with organizations from 20 to 100,000+ employees.
