This simple 5 step philosophy has great professional and personal applications for “pilers” and “neatniks” alike. You will learn techniques for eliminating from the classroom clutter and antiquated resources that actually impede learning and how to construct a structured yet flexible environment that will support diverse instructional methodology. Strategies for; sorting, scheduling and sustaining your new workplace are discussed along with the need to monitor your progress, anticipate problem areas and how to avoid them.
Additional chapters explore expectations for teachers and students as well as the workforce in general which highlight the need for both mutual respect and accountability throughout your organization. A hallmark of LEAN culture is the cultivation of innovation and initiative for all team members which includes students whose active involvement is required in order to close the learning cycle.

Traits of Leadership outlines the characteristics required to be a successful, transformative leader capable of taking your school to a new level. LEAN workplaces empower all of its members to become actively involved in continuous improvement and decision making.

Getting the right people in the right places will help administrators build energetic and bold teams that expand the limits of what your school is capable of achieving. Teamwork is a foundational principle in the LEAN program which values the active contributions of all staff members to improve levels of service and prepare for the future. Teamwork discusses how personality profiles help form well rounded teams, what functions teams can perform, the need for redundancy and how important “voice” is for all stakeholders in your school.
The chapter entitled “We are all in this together” focuses on defining a unified goal along with establishing a balanced sense of urgency in order to reach your goals. Supporting each other in a quest for personal excellence and recognizing the importance of our individual contribution in helping our school reach new levels of performance are critical elements in the creation of powerful professional learning communities.
LEAN for Schools is designed to help your organization promote a culture that embraces change, celebrates diverse talents and abilities while creating a unified workforce focused on your unique and specific goals. LEAN schools live by the simple question, “How may we help
