In the process of implementing Lean Manufacturing culture, it is essential to know how to communicate correctly what Lean Production is.
Knowing about the way of thinking of our collaborators makes the process of communication with our listener efficient and harmonious.
Motivation is energy in movement, its effect is an impulse which runs along the nerves and makes us immediately move from the chair to get the remote control or to rush out of bed early in the morning to get to the beach or to finally do that thing we hate to do and that we have been continually postponing.
Lean Production is founded on team work; this ensures that the basic skill for launching and leading the Lean culture implementation to success is (even before all of its methods) the management of a work group. If we are unable to manage and motivate a work group, then we will never be able to implement Lean production.

What are the base conditions that a good Kaizen coach must create so that the group performs very well?
In the company, it is possible to see the force of resistance to change at work just as soon as new ideas which in fact question the entire hierarchy, are introduced.
The resistance to change is much stronger the closer you get to the vertex of the company pyramid.
In January my partners at Axium Performance and I organised a visit (for one of our customers) to Mondelez in Strasburg.
Mondelez is a world leader in the production of chocolate, biscuits, sweets and other confectionery. The group is quoted on the US stock exchange and its presence in France numbers 5000 collaborators, distributed over 21 premises of which 16 are production premises.
France is one of the group’s fundamental growth platforms.
