Does Your Lean Culture Measure Up? [Lessons From The Road]
How do you know when you’ve shaped your lean culture effectively? You create a mechanism to measure the results. In my most recent “Lessons from the Road” article written for Industry Week, I share the five essential mechanisms that will help you establish a management system to measure and improve your culture.
The five essentials are as follow:
- Articulate your target culture
- Have a behavior change plan
- Observe behaviors
- Conduct an organizational assessment
- Use a survey assessment
Once you have an understanding of whether your culture is working, then you can adjust your plan to accomplish your goals.
