Strong words but the rewards developed from a great company culture of Lean drives efficiency, quality and innovation and that Culture becomes the basis for the most important factor of Company Growth! Your business’s competitive advantage is in your company culture. The next question is ‘How do you develop your company culture?’ Here are three factors to deliver a Lean Culture that will drive company growth.
First, Lean Training is the start of that foundation. The subject matter of Lean Six Sigma sets the groundwork for a common ‘Lean Language’. This avenue of approach provides the tools, but ‘buy-in’ is provided via personal growth and ‘Value Add’ for the associate. This is derived from a ‘true’ feeling that the associate is ‘Better’ because of the business. Lean training is transferable to any organization as a knowledge base. This makes the ‘Associate’ more valuable. And the associate should know this.
A second factor is a personal ‘Earnings Motive’. This could be delivered via a range of possibilities from team goals and rewards to company-wide profit sharing. A strong motivating leadership is the third factor. It is important to have that ‘Ring Leader’ who can vocalize the company values, direction, and goals. Like a table needs at least three legs, the ‘Cult in Culture’ starts with all three of these foundational supports!
