1) Specify Value
2) Identify The Value Stream
3) Flow
4) Pull
5) Perfection

Clearly, the focus is on processes rather than people.

Even the latest definitions only replace ‘Perfection’ with ‘Continuous Improvement’ and add a global ‘respect (or develop) people’ term at all stages.

Either way, there is no recognition of the need to have the right ‘mindset’ to effectively implement or even work with these ‘lean thinking’ principles.
