During my years as VP of operations for Donnelly Corp in West Michigan I learned the following directive. “It is managements responsibility to offer participation, it’s employees responsibility to accept. If management does not offer, employees cannot accept.” To be clear this was a quote from either Mr. John Donnelly Senior or Dr. Carl Frost from MSU. Management, this means you developing a set of participation models for the team members to join.
Good Luck On Your Lean Journey
