What are charateristics of a Lean company?

1) -Learning organization
-Solutions come from the people who work the area
-PCDA (plan do check act) is clearly in action
-Everything is visual and visual controls are apparent

2)Respect for people (the real kind, including things like accountability)

A clear focus on understanding and delivering customer value

The courage to face the really tough and ugly problems head-on

3)-Humility - the more you strive for Lean, the more you realize how little you know, and how much more there is yet to learn
-Trust - If you truly believe in participation and cutting waste, we have to build trust. Trust allows for de-layered, streamlined, and more creative organizations.

4)Vision, mission, costancy of purpose

5)Think deep. Act small. Care for all
