Session Summary

Over the decades it has been proven to be difficult to move Lean forward from a niche management practice to one
that is commonly found in organizations of all types. This presentation will highlight 13 years of research to unravel the
mystery of why most CEOs remain fully committed to archaic classical management. It is only by understanding the ways
and means by which the past retains its grip on the present that greater progress in management thinking and practice
can be achieved.
