Lean management is more than a buzzword for GE managers and employees worldwide – its concepts, which focus on respect for people and continuous improvement, significantly shape how GE teams think and develop new ways to advance in critical areas such as safety, quality, efficiency and customer service. Lean processes and working styles can’t succeed in isolation, though. To produce optimal results, Lean must be ingrained in corporate cultures promoting openness, humility and transparency.
