Visiting organisations I am struck by the armies of bright people rushing from meeting to meeting making PowerPoint presentations to each other and by the time and effort senior managers spend in long meetings reviewing plans. The management time that actually results in improvements in the way organisations create value is dwarfed by the amount of time they spend fighting fires. I see well intentioned people trapped in broken and dysfunctional management processes that drive them to do the wrong things.

The most damaging form of waste is the waste of management. We have a long tradition of only organising Lean Summits when we have something new to share. Fortunately we are now at a point where we can review the early experiments to learn how lean can transform the effectiveness of leaders managing projects in the Executive Office. This opens a new chapter in lean thinking and will be the opening theme of our next Lean Summit.

We have also brought together many pioneers who have successfully taken lean into new areas, like healthcare, sales and service delivery and there will be ample time for detailed learning and discussion with experts in workshops and at the Summit Dinner. We will also open with one remarkable story – the transformation of the oldest hospital in Europe and will close with another remarkable story of how McLaren, the most successful Formula One motor racing team, is building a new lean car company from scratch.
