Does your Lean journey not really take off? Are you succeeding with small islands here and there – seeing new methods being developed with good results - while the large-scale change is not happening? Well, welcome to the Square One club. You are not the only member!If you are in Square One, you are unfortunately in a deadlock. Four mental road blocks will keep your organisation right where it is. Such an organisation has no inherent momentum to change. You need to clear these road blocks and instead join the Square Two club – characterised by four other mental traits – that will make change a natural state.Lean is not about what people do, it is about how people think. And that is the problem. It is not apparent what you need to change. You cannot see wrong thinking. Only observe the traces of it.In Square Two Johan Winther explores the challenges with this mental change from the inside of one of Sweden’s most acknowl-edged Lean practitioners, Scania CV AB. The book is presented with inside examples, outside observations, references to research and theoretical models.
Johan Winther has a 25-year career within Scania. He has held various managerial positions within Sales, Controlling, Product Management, Business Administration and Change Lead.
