Es dehnt sich deutlich auf die Elemente der Lean, strukturieren sie in einer bestimmten Weise, die durch schlanke Praktiker operationalisiert werden kann.Sie können alles, was Sie über den Toyota-Weg wollen zu lernen; können Sie die Werkzeuge, die sie erstellt haben, zu implementieren, aber wenn Sie nicht über die in Ihrer Kultur etabliert Verhaltensweisen, wird es nicht erfolgreich für die langfristige Erhaltung der operativen Exzellenz sein. Führung muss die Rede von der geografischen Nordrichtung in jedem Aspekt des Lean Leadership Development Model (LLDM) zu Fuß, wie ausführlich von Dr. Liker in diesem letzten Shingo-Preis übermittelt Gewinnen buchen.Das Erfolgsgeheimnis von Toyota hinsichtlich der Entwicklung von Führungskräften haben Jeffrey Liker und Toyota-Veteran Gary Convis zum ersten Mal in ihrem Buch The Toyota Way to Lean Leadership gelüftet. Toyota-Führungskräfte leben die Unternehmenswerte, verbessern das Unternehmen kontinuierlich und können sich auf ein schnell veränderndes Umfeld einstellen.Für Toyota-Führungskräfte wird ein Kern-Set von Fähigkeiten vorausgesetzt. Dies zielt darauf ab, den richtigen Weg zu finden, um Wertschaffung für die Kunden zu verbessern - unabhängig für welchen Unternehmensbereich (Verkauf, Logistik, Personal, Fertigung, Forschung & Entwicklung, Finanzen). Dieser Prozess wird oftmals mit den Ergebnissen des Prozesses verwechselt, welche als Werkzeuge bei einer Toyota-Werksbesichtigung anschaulich werden. Das Phänomen eines jeden Toyota-Werkes ist, dass eine Kultur von Menschen geschaffen wird, die wohl durchdacht eine Methode des Definierens, der Analyse sowie der Problemlösung erlernt haben, um das Unternehmen weiter nach vorne zu bringen.

The DoD relies heavily on its civilian workforce to perform duties usually performed by military personnel -- incl. combat support functions such as logistics. Civilian senior leaders are among those who manage DoD's civilians. In 2007, DoD was mandated to assess requirements for its civilian senior leader workforce in light of recent trends. DoD reported its recent reply to this requirement in 2009, which used information from a 2008 baseline review to validate its senior leader requirements. This report reviewed DoD's approach for: (1) assessing its civilian senior leader workforce requirements; (2) identifying and communicating the need for additional senior leaders; and (3) developing and managing this workforce.
