Guest Post: Missing Element of Change = Bad Formula

Mark Hamel, author of Kaizen Event Fieldbook and blogger at Gemba Tales, recently extended an offer for me to guest post on his site.  I took the opportunity to talk about what is needed for change in a Lean environment.

For many people change means hard work, risk, and the need to learn new ways for unproven benefits. Change is one of the most difficult things for humans to readily accept. Charles Darwin said "It is not the strongest species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones who are most responsive to change" which holds true for culture change.

Fortunately, there is a formula to make the change successful....

To continue reading this post and to find out what happens when you don't follow this formula head to Mark's blog Gemba Tales.
