Abstract

In western companies Lean Management is often falling short of expectations. Normally,
the reason for this is the focus on a methodological approach concurrently
neglecting behavioral aspects. The article based on a case study approach offers a
holistic approach to Lean Management implementation by empowering employees
for a decentralized and goal-oriented improvement process considering behavioral
aspects.
