Lean Thinking App Now Available
Toronto, ON August 23, 2011
Lean Learning Solutions’ new mobile app illustrates twelve of the most commonly found corporate mental models and contrasts them against the Lean-thinking alternative.
Lean Learning Solutions Inc. introduces its Lean Thinking app. This unique mobile application illustrates Lean versus conventional thinking in contemporary organizations.
The app works as a memory jogger of key Lean mental models through the use of thought-provoking images with minimal text. The Lean Thinking app brings the fundamentals to life in a light, playful way.
Available now on the iPhone or Blackberry, the Company is currently developing the application for Android.
“Whether you're in the gemba, in training or working with a team, we want you to have the fundamentals handy.,” says Pascal Dennis, author of Andy & Me, Getting the Right Things Done, and other Lean best-sellers. “The Lean Thinking app reinforces Lean fundamentals, complements your Lean library and is a great reference guide on gemba walks.”
Topics covered in the Lean Thinking app include: Leader = Sensei, Leadership - Go See, Standards, Quality at the Source (Jidoka), Making Problems Visible, Problem Solving, Leadership - Guide, Simplicity, Flow, Pull, Planning, People.
The app is a mobile version of Lean Pathways Brain Booster Pocket Cards that are used in corporate Lean training courses. The company felt it was a natural progression to present the cards as a mobile app. It plans to create apps for its two other Lean Brain Booster Pocket Cards: Lean Tools and Lean Leadership.
