[en] FACTOR ANALYSIS LEADING TO A SUCCESSFUL LEAN STRATEGY
Many companies are willing to achieve operational excellence. In order to do so, they try to implement powerful managerial approaches. Lean philosophy is one of them. This philosophy is not that easy to implement but it is the key to cost reducing and waste eliminating. Lean is a long way to success for a company.
The Lean philosophy includes many tools, way of thinking and righteous procedures. But as there is a lot of theses tools, the way to implement them differ according to the company’s industry, size, or even processes. The implementation of such a philosophy depends on key factors. The purpose of this thesis is to understand the Lean philosophy and thereafter find out how do we implement such a philosophy, tools and what are the success factors.
This thesis is to analyze individual concrete cases on “how to”. An empirical research has been carried out with the purpose of confirming or refuting the findings published in the literature. A subset of companies and people in particular has been asked to fulfill a questionnaire. Answers provided are to be compared with the literature, leading to the thesis conclusion.
As a matter of fact, a good Lean implementation relies on a right combination between “soft-practices” such as human resource management, organizational culture and “hard-practices”, which refer to Lean tools and practices.
