During our 'Refreshing Lean' session, the concept of "Small L" and "Big L" Lean was approached -
The articulated difference being:
"Small L" Lean, as an approach, tends more toward acknowledging that Lean methodologies and techniques exist, and aiming toward generally efficient business practices.
"Big L" Lean is the actual implementation of Lean methodologies in business practices.
This session we are gonna explore this topic more -
1. What steps can be taken to transition from the "small L" approach?
2. When is a good time to consider doing this?
3. How do we address the potential pitfall of becoming a "Lean Snob" - dropping Lean slang to sound cool at all the Entrepreneur and Small Business gatherings?
Please suggest reading materials and or refinements to the topic description -
Look forward to seeing y'all.
