Link to What's Holding Back Lean?

Interesting article in the latest issue of Managing Automation - "What's Holding Back Lean?"

Do you see the same barriers to implementing lean in your company?

Very good article (although the author does point out some companies which are moving forward on Lean). No doubt that short-term cost reduction requirements makes it very tough implementing Lean. Article also makes the great point that U.S. companies tend to put forward feel-good presentation about lean instead of managers going to the gemba.

Dallas, you mentioned great points from the article. It seems that management and leadership are the main barriers to moving forward on our lean journey.
