Here’s a very nice summary mindmap of what a Value Stream Manager ought to be and do in a wannabe Lean organization.
Here’s a nice mindmap about Lean Accounting! BMA Inc – The Lean Accounting Leaders – Lean Accounting.
I remembered when I read the “Real numbers” book that it was interesting an subject (although finance is not my topic of choice). Will have to re-read it again, now.
Having read recently about this topic, I summarized most of the method in a mindmap which is available on biggerplate.
Please note that a lot more is available (and detailed!) on CSH Author Werner Ulrich home page! Please go and see.
Next time you’re on the gemba and you seem not to talk the same language as your peers, it may be useful to critically explore your assumptions and boundaries!
I said everything in the subject. You can get the map here: http://www.biggerplate.com/mindmaps/xMqBglAG/greg-egan-the-skilled-helper
This one lacked in my binder. This is corrected thanks to Wikipedia. Please enjoy the map here.
I just uploaded a mindmap on BiggerPlate summarizing Clean Language.
(It might help with coaching…)
I just uploaded a new small mindmap about these two themes. I plan to write about how that seems to fit well with Lean coaching and Lean management, soon.
Using Motivational Interviewing to elicit change under constraint (#change #lean @biggerplate #mindmap)
I’ve just finished a wonderful ebook on “Motivational Interviewing in Probation” (see my links on my delicious account) and it appeared to me that this skill may very well be suited for Lean Coaches when they don’t have the opportunity to coach top management but are asked to “do Lean” in the company.
Most of the time, managers are asked to “do Lean” and this very request triggers their change resistance upon arrival of the loca Lean expert (coach). As each managers may be on a different stage of the change model (see my previous article on Stages of Change Model), the coach should be addressing each of them differently. This mindmap explains how.
Use your new MI skills to achieve that and tell me how it works. Warning: it may look easy, but it’s some hard and live intellectual work. But who said Lean was easy anyway? 🙂

Considering #AppreciativeInquiry to lead #change in your organization? Have TWO #mindmap summaries at hands reach! (@biggerplate)
Ok I think the title’s saying it all.
The first map is a summary of the 5D process.
For a more detailed explanation of what AI is, you might then have a look at the mindmap I did of the excellent book “The Power of Appreciative Inquiry” by Diana Whitney and Amanda Trosten-Bloom (not replacing the book of course!)
