Shop Floor Management, or the control of every productive process in a firm
There is an increasing use of terms such as Lean Leadership and Shop floor Management, in contexts where a change of mentality is needed first of all to better face the changes that the progressive automation and development of the industry in 4.0 perspective impose.
So let’s first see what these terms mean, what they mean for a company and above all why Shop Floor Management should be introduced.
Lean Leadership: meaning
As it often happens, a word may seem way more complicated than how it actually is. Let’s see now what lean leadership in a company implies.
Lean Leadership is a “agile, quick lean“, and it is the basis of corporate change; it is in fact a new vision of corporate leadership, which moves from the traditional role of “boss” to that of a guide able to share responsibilities.
Shop Floor Management: add value to the product
Why change business management through Lean Management?
- Because the market, which requires increasingly frequent change, needs flexible and timely organization;
- To increase competitiveness. The corporate culture is not bought but developed;
- To maximize objective skills instead of focusing on individualism;
- Because all too often managers give a contradictory message to their collaborators: “does what I tell you, but don’t do what I do”.
