by Jamie Flinchbaugh on 01-24-19

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.
