Anne-Lise Seltzer: Is there a lean approach to organizing value throughout the value chain?
Automotive companies tend to outsource all except body and engine, and service organizations such as banks and insurance companies are now arguing they should do the same in order to become lean. Is there a specific lean approach to where value should be in the supply chain? Is there a unique Toyota way of doing so?

Dear Lean Edge Reader,
Join us at my next Lean Summit to debate how we take lean into the Executive Office, how we can create a management system for end-to-end value streams and how we can unlock big gains in service delivery organisations, including healthcare. A combination of pioneering examples, inspiring stories and ample opportunities for discussion make this a unique opportunity to push forward the frontiers of lean thinking. Be prepared to be stunned by the amazing story of how a former colleague on IMVP, Anthony Sheriff McLaren has built a new car and car company from scratch using lean principles – watch out Ferrari!

See you there.
