This book examines the global cultural influences on the understanding and application of Lean production systems within various geographic and cultural areas. It identifies the cultural values as examined against Lean manufacturing disciplines to derive culturally based Lean manufacturing values. The approach of people, process, and culture will help managers better understand the potential limitations and performance shortfalls that result from varying interpretations and applications of Lean systems. This approach will help readers demystify the sometimes complex characteristics of a Lean transformation.
