'If the learner hasn't learned, then the teacher hasn't taught'

True leadership is developing and supporting the team

That is the spirit of Lean mentorship....blame doesn't play a part in Lean Management for the simple fact that problems should be and are expected by true Lean Managers.

With problems, come insight.

And with insight, connected to understand the root cause of why the problem(s) occurred in the first place, comes the ability to provide a sustainable solution to it ever happening again.

We learn wisdom from failure much more than from success; we often discover what will do, by finding out what will not do; and probably he who never makes a mistake never made a discovery. Samuel Smiles

Truly successful Lean management unwaveringly focusses on building value to the customer and to minimising waste within the organisation....mistakes will happen, problems will occur in the process but that is to be seen as part of the journey and all should be learned from.

What is steadfast to the success of an organisation's Lean journey, is that the Lean Leader(s) chosen to drive the changes are themselves capable of engaging and developing their teams....only if their people start becoming intolerant to waste, thinking always of ways to improve value to the customer and taking initiatives (which will involve making mistakes), can their teaching and developing be deemed successful.
