LEAN Leadership 5.0 in the era of sustainable digital transformation

Lean Leader Summit 2024

A LEAN LEADER 5.0 is capable of understanding both current and future challenges with a holistic perspective, mastering creative problem-solving skills to tackle problems at their roots, and, on this basis, involving stakeholders to adapt business strategy and related enterprise architecture, setting up a governance structure and EAM, and initiating projects to undergo continuous changes for sustainable growth.

Coming from the mass production era (1940 – 1950), LEAN PRODUCTION MANAGEMENT encompasses identifying value, mapping the value stream, creating flow, establishing a pull system, and striving for continuous improvement (https://businessmap.io/lean-management/).

Different from a LEAN PRODUCTION MANAGER whose main focus has been to keep efficiency and cost down, but with less concern about potential risks and opportunities, a LEAN LEADER 5.0 paves the way for more resilience in business by taking not only cost but also risks and opportunities into consideration. To achieve this, it establishes a stringent process and system landscape to enable data-driven decision-making.

Mrs. Yao Schultz-Zheng, Independent Management Advisory @ E-Mobility Sharing Economy Service, will present a case study and take the audience on her journey of creative problem-solving by applying the TOGAF enterprise architecture method.
