Abstract

Purpose –

The purpose of this paper is to emphasize the importance of measuring the starting

point of improvement work focusing on soft values and to present one way of measuring the

starting point of a Lean implementation. The purpose is also to describe the Lean

implementation planned within a municipal division and also to present their measured

starting conditions.

Methodology/approach –

A literature study, with Lean implementation, measuring starting

points for improvement work, soft values and the effects of the improvement work in focus

has been carried out. Documents from the planned Lean implementation within a municipal

division have been studied. To measure the conditions for the implementation a previously

conducted measurement approach that measured health-related Quality Management was used.

Findings –

The paper contains an argument for the importance of measuring the effect of a

Lean implementation with a focus on soft values and measuring starting points. A description

of one planned Lean implementation within a municipal division and their starting conditions

are presented.

Practical implications –

To measure the conditions at the starting point of a Lean

implementation gives managers information to help them focus on important improvement

areas. A description of a Lean implementation can help other organizations to plan their

implementation.
