IDC PlanScape: The Resilient Lean Program for Manufacturers

Manufacturers need to bring proven Lean and Six Sigma approaches forward in their operational model transformation, but with the goal of making them more resilient through the application of technologies such as the 3rd Platform and Innovation Accelerators, said Lorenzo Veronesi, research manager, IDC Manufacturing Insights. "This transformation will force organizations to move away from a traditional perspective of managing business processes that are hierarchical and executed via a few big, top-down, long-lasting decisions, i.e., the plan, or through a constant top-down micromanagement, i.e., through the traditional supervisor role, to a relational perspective, where processes are executed and people managed through several smaller decisions, taken on a continuous basis at all hierarchical levels."
