Abstract

Although it is generally accepted that lean manufacturing improves operational performance, many organisations are struggling to adapt to the lean philosophy. The purpose of this study is to contribute to a more effective strategy for implementing the lean manufacturing improvement philosophy. The study sets out both to integrate well-researched findings and theories related to generic organisational culture with more recent research and experience related to lean culture, and to examine the role that culture plays in the effective implementation of lean manufacturing principles and techniques. The ultimate aim of this exercise is to develop a theoretical lean culture causal framework.

Alhoewel die 'lean' vervaardigings filosofie algemeen aanvaar word as 'n metode om operasionele mededingendheid te verbeter, is daar baie ondernemings wat dit moeilik vind om by die 'lean' filosofie aan te pas. Die doel van hierdie studie was om 'n bydrae te maak tot die toepassing van 'n meer effektiewe strategie vir die toepassing van 'n 'lean' vervaardigings metodologie. Die studie kombineer en integreer bestaande bevindinge en teorie met betrekking tot algemene ondernemingskultuur met nuwe navorsings bevindinge en ervarings in n 'lean' kultuur. Die studie ondersoek ook die rol van kultuur in die effektiewe implementeering van 'lean' vervaardigings tegnieke. Die hoofdoel van hierdie oefening was om 'n teoretiese raamwerk vir 'lean' kultuur oorsake te ontwikkel.
