Matthias Ehni and Wolfgang Kersten

A chapter in Innovations and Strategies for Logistics and Supply Chains: Technologies, Business Models and Risk Management, 2015, pp 175-200 from Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH), Institute of Business Logistics and General Management

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.
