Manufacturing Journalist TR Cutler Asserts Lean Manufacturing Fails without Lean Leaders

Lean manufacturing is a term applied to processes for department staffers, but lean leadership is a process for the C-Suite is essential according to Manufacturing Journalist TR Cutler.  Lean principles are critical for achievement in optimizing day to day productivity as well as reaching long-term growth goals.

As manufacturers and supply chain professionals, the concept of lean leadership is an extension of lean manufacturing. While the aim of Lean Manufacturing was to eliminate waste and streamline the production process, with an emphasis on value provided to the customer, leaders lose steam and the “continuous” part of process improved fades quickly.

Cutler has written extensively about lean manufacturing since 1999 and recognizes manufacturers worldwide utilizing these techniques. Cutler noted that because of the measurable ROI lean processes deliver, writing about the direct impact on the bottom line is a quantifiable result.  Cutler suggested that the culture of lean leadership is required for sustainably and maximizing customer value. C-level and other corporate decision-makers have implemented lean leadership.
