A great number of LEAN implementations fail and technical reasons are rarely the root cause.  The major culprit of these failures can be attributed to the leadership and people side of the implementation.  Implementing LEAN exacerbates the worry and anguish people experience when going through this major change.  Leading successful  LEAN transformations require significant and pervasive change in mindset and commitment and constant reinforcement of the behaviors that support them.  In this course, students learn how to lead successful LEAN implementation by understanding and influencing human behavior, leading change process and building a strong culture that embraces LEAN as the standard way of doing work.   This class provides students with the opportunity to learn through reading, individual and group activities, cases, discussions and seminars, field work, research and team projects.
