Lean Learning Solutions Inc. introduces its Lean Thinking app, a unique mobile application designed to illustrate 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 also 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,
- Quality at the Source (Jidoka),
- Making Problems Visible,
- Problem Solving,
- Leadership - Guide,
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.
