Why Most Lean Manufacturing Change Initiatives Fail to Meet Expectations.

A primary reason why most company change initiatives fail to meet expectations is lack of a focus on identifying and mastering the basics of manufacturing. A prime example is the Lean Manufacturing Initiative. It's not an "add water and stir" change initiative. You can't just decide one day to become lean and think it will happen overnight. You need to determine what constraints are impeding your ability to increase speed, improve quality, and eliminate non-value-added activities. And, then you need to develop a culture of mastering the Basics of Manufacturing.

The LEAN initiative has helped many companies improve their manu-facturing performance but most failed to meet expectations. The lack of a culture of identifying and mastering the Basics of Manufacturing has limited their results.

Henry Ford: Creating the BASICS

Henry Ford first introduced manufacturing basics at his River Rouge operation in 1920. Using these basics as a basis for his production line concept, the Model T Ford plant was able to go from receipt of iron ore to casting the engine block, to shipment of the machined engine block in a final assembled car in an astonishing forty-eight hours. Now that's LEAN.


The Japanese used Ford's manufacturing basics, Juran's quality basics and Deming's management basics to create the foundation for achieving world class manufacturing commonly referred to as the Toyota Production System (TPS).

Vince Lombardi: Mastering the BASICS

Many years ago Vince Lombardi led the Green Bay Packers football team to unprecedented success by having an almost obsessive focus on having his team master the  BASICS of football. 

Itís amazing how many individuals and companies have great visions yet fail to achieve their full growth and earning potentials. They're a lot like the Green Bay Packers' football team before the arrival of Vince Lombardi... all the potential in the world but with not enough focus on executing the BASICS of their business and profession.
