Leaders can influence change and increase their staff engagement when they understand that they either have systems in place or can create systems that can reinforce a new way of thinking and acting in the business.
Principles set the direction, and Lean Tools and Techniques are applied by the teams to solve business problems, but it is the Business Management Systems that bring the leaders and managers into the workplace to observe, challenge, support and coach their teams in a way that makes it meaningful and educational for the teams.
