LEAN COMPETENCIES

Accessing and Assessing Lean Talent

From long running Lean organizations to newer implementors, assessment of candidates' Lean competencies should avoid over-attributing credentials and execution to the standards of a current employer because employers' business sytems and each individual's engagement with Lean varies.  


We focus on assessing commercial, general manager, and corporate functions talent regarding their experiences and/or abilities to join a client's pre-existing Lean culture.
