Dr. Jeffrey K. Liker is Professor of Industrial and Operations Engineering at the University of Michigan and a professional speaker and advisor.
On Friday 31 May 2013 Jeffrey Liker was speaking about Lean Leadership in front of more than 150 Scandinavian Lean enthusiasts.
15 years ago ”Lean Thinking” was published and started a wave of Japanese inspired process change. Through the years we have all – in the best Lean manner – made our mistakes, learned from them and, thereby, come closer to perfection. Probably, we have also realised that the tools do not make all that much difference without the people to employ them. Thereby, Lean Leadership has finally taken the position as the key to succeeding in a Lean transformation.
