Our friend Paul Akers from FastCap recently visited Lantech, a leading lean manufacturer of wrapping and packaging machines. Based in Louisville, Kentucky, Lantech has become a benchmark company that often invites visitors to share in their learning. Paul Akers interviewed their President Jim Lancaster on video to capture the four lean leadership lessons he was able to take away from Lantech.
In the video you will see a few visuals of lean practices within the Lantech factory. More importantly you will hear Jim Lancaster explain how to motivate people, how to know if your management team has true belief in the lean system, and why leadership needs to get our from behind consultants and educate people themselves.
