"How do you judge if your firm is ready"

From one of the Lean mailing lists. It was posted in the context of Lean adoption, but seems to apply to just about anything…

I believe there is only one pre-condition. The leadership of the company must believe “The status quo is no longer an acceptable way of doing business”. […] One of our associates gave me that quote. She was asked what lean meant, and that was the reply.[…]The rest is just technical details.

    So right. So many organisations think that the solution is about more management. “Management solution” is a classic oxymoron (but thereagain, in software organisations, so is “effective leadership”).
