Lean has created great results within production and administration in organisations all over the world. But what happens when Lean meets innovation? Does it destroy the creativity required for innovation, or can Lean further improve the results in a business?
In Lean Innovation, Claus Sehested and Henrik Sonnenberg reveal how the interplay between creativity and efficiency can ensure that top management visions are realised through innovation initiatives. Lean can take the innovation initiatives to a higher level and transform the company's innovation processes into its most important strategic competence.
In their book, the authors of Lean Innovation deal with the key challenges faced by managers in knowledge organisations, and present a series of principles that can be used to bring more leadership into the innovation initiatives. They also discuss methods for creating a clearer focus on results and learning in innovative organisations' core processes.
Ecco, LINAK, Ramboll Oil & Gas, Exhausto and Coloplast are among the companies that have contributed with examples of how this can be achieved.
