The Lean CEO explores enterprise-wide Lean adoption through in-depth interviews with some of the best known Lean-practicing CEOs. Readers learn first hand how these exceptional leaders applied Lean to boost profitability, empower employees, and forge closer bonds with customers and suppliers. Drawing on in-depth interviews with some of the best known Lean-practicing CEOs, this groundbreaking book shows how to implement lean in virtually every type of company and facet of the organization The Lean CEOs, who represent organizations from 50 to 50,000 employees, speak to readers inside and outside the Lean community. These are leaders who have diverged from conventional business practices and achieved remarkable results. Readers will gain new perspectives on problems such as global competition, fixing healthcare, addressing alienation and cynicism in the workplace, and putting businesses on a sustainable footing. Stoller interviews 30-plus CEOs, C-level executives, and change agents who led well-known lean efforts at Wiremold, Lantech, ThedaCare, and Virginia Mason among several others. But the book also explores many less well-known transformations at a variety of industries in the U.S. and elsewhere. Among these are Aluminum Trailer Company, Inc., The Steffes Corporation, E-Leather, A UK startup, and San Benedetto, based near Venice, Italy. (By the way, the stories of Lantech, Aluminum Trailer, Steffes, along with the Ariens Company make up a chapter called “A New Way Out of Financial Crisis,” which has some of the most illuminating and useful information for finance-fixated senior leaders.) As organizations strive to do more with less, many are turning to Lean methodology, which is based on the same techniques that propelled the legendary turnaround of Japan’s industrial sector after World War II. Few leaders, however, understand that the real secret behind Lean is a comprehensive approach to management that differs significantly from what is taught in business school. Lean initiatives, consequently, are rarely led by senior management, and seldom lead to significant change. The Lean CEO reveals the true power of Lean through in-depth interviews with CEOs who have gone beyond tool adoption and established Lean as a corporate-wide management system. The all-star cast of twenty-eight leaders represents a wide variety of organizations, including global manufacturers Ingersoll-Rand and Barry-Wehmiller, healthcare icons Thedacare and Virginia Mason, the states of Connecticut and Washington, historical icons such as Wiremold, and many more. In a series of provocative chapters, the CEOs tell in their own words how they applied Lean management to deliver sustainable financial results, empower and motivate employees, break down internal silos, and build solid partnerships with customers and suppliers. Their testimony provides a goldmine of practical advice for managers in Lean and non-Lean organizations alike as they share their unique personal insights on topics such as: ● Leading and empowering people. ● Building transparency and trust. ● Tuning into the customer experience. ● Aligning strategic direction with day-to-day operations. ● Instilling a corporate-wide culture that promotes safety and quality. ● Creating a learning organization. Thoughtful, sometimes brutally frank, these leaders challenge many of the sacred cows of traditional business, such as standard cost accounting, hierarchical management, emphasis on large batches, and our obsession with data and computers. The book is organized around 10 major challenges that the CEOs faced when they began their Lean transformations: ➽ A New Way Out Of Financial Crisis ➽ Capacity Without Capital Expenditure ➽ A Realistic Approach to Worker Motivation ➽ Building Collaborative Management Teams ➽ Putting People First ➽ Building the Learning Organization ➽ Integrating a Diversified Corporation ➽ Reducing Dependence on the CEO ➽ Solving the Cost / Quality Conundrum in Healthcare ➽ Defining and Delivering Value in Government Citing numerous examples from their experience, they provide a fresh view of today’s business challenges and a positive roadmap for any organization that is striving for excellence. The narratives from the Lean CEOs are fresh, candid, and often provocative. They openly challenge many common business practices, such as standard cost accounting, top-down management, emphasis on batch sizes and economies of scale, and our obsession with computers. Their advice carries the authority of leaders who have followed an alternative path and delivered remarkable results. The book is written for readers inside and outside of the Lean community. Lean practitioners and managers will find dozens of insights on how Lean efforts are perceived by senior managers, board members, customers, and suppliers. Those new to Lean will learn how Lean changes organizations, what those changes require, and about the many opportunities that Lean presents. Stoller quotes his executive subjects often and extensively. The result is first-hand testimony from business leaders contesting traditional management practices about everything from accounting to batch size, employee involvement, motivation, leadership, economies of scale, and a raft of other conventional methods. Not only do these executives reveal their business problems and the various lean approaches they used to help solve them, they also speak openly about their own behavior changes and the behavior changes they see in others. They talk about altered roles, struggles, and how relationships with people improved over time as a result of lean thinking and practice. The book is organized around “burning platforms,” Stoller says. So you’ll find chapters on “Putting People First,” “Capacity Without Capital Expenditure,” or “Reducing Dependence on the CEO.” Within each are examples from public or privately held industrial or service companies, or nonprofits. Two chapters are reserved for healthcare and government, respectively. The result – always nice for a summer read – is that you can start anywhere that interests you and skip around, if you want. Stoller has said that The Lean CEO is not a lean primer, which is accurate. But the first two chapters provide an excellent quick overview of essential lean management concepts and their roots that managers who are new to Lean will want to read.
