Strengths-based Lean for Five Years
Experiences from Everyday Operations
The need for creating more value with fewer resources is apparent in most organisations. For decades, the discussion has been whether to apply rational logics and improvement tools or to apply social logics and empowering change methods. However, pioneering practitioners have embraced the best of both worlds to simultaneously develop people and technical systems with the insights from Lean thinking and the strengths-based paradigm. We present a look into such a pioneering manager’s everyday operations after five years of practising Strengths-based Lean.
