Operations & Lean Practices

Gary Kapanowski Talks About The Impact Of Accountants

I had the great honor to discuss lean and the impact accountants can have implementing lean in an organization with the Michigan Business Network on January 19, 2017.  Being interviewed by Debra Levantrosser, a leading lean professional, provided a great discussion regarding the role of the accountant with lean.  Please take the time to listen to our discussion to verify if you agree that the accountant can do more in the lean implementation and continued improvement.

The Leaning Edge

The Leaning Edge, hosted by Debra Levantrosser, she speaks with leaders, implementers and believers in the lean philosophy to share their successes and struggles in hopes that they will help others in their lean journey.

The show focuses on the fact that lean is a mindset and a culture, not a set of process improvement tools, and shows how this approach can make your city, state and country an even stronger and more successful, stable place one organization at a time and one person at a time.

The “Lean” philosophy refers to engaging and involving all levels of employees in development of ideas to provide value to customers by aiming for high quality, low cost and short lead time. A specific kind of leadership style is seen in successful lean organizations which includes rewarding experimentation and developing people into problem solvers.
