Posted: June 9, 2020 at 5:19 pm   /   by   /   comments (0)

Renowned Lean Pioneer Mark DeLuzio, author of “Flatlined: Why Lean Transformations Fail and What to Do About It” joins Enterprise Radio.

This episode of Enterprise Radio is in association with the Author Channel.

Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Mark DeLuzio discuss the following:

  1. Please explain what “lean space” is and how your book adds to the knowledge of this?
  2. The way you approach Lean in your consulting practice came out of you being the principal architect of the Danaher Business System or DBS. DBS is largely considered to be the US’s most successful example of Lean in action. Lean is largely associated with manufacturing, but you say it can be used in many types of businesses and should be used to support strategic business initiatives across the entire enterprise. Would you tell us more about putting Lean principles into practice in a more holistic way?
  3. What are the main reasons you see that companies are now flatlining after implementing Lean for more than a decade?
  4. In your book, you discuss five steps for breathing new life into Lean initiatives and achieving sustained results. What’s the first step?
  5. What do you see as the biggest obstacle to achieving long-term results with Lean?

Mark DeLuzio—known as a pioneer of Lean and the principal architect of the Danaher Business System (DBS)—serves as a trusted advisor to senior leaders in global organizations whose financial and operational metrics have flatlined. Leveraging his unmatched and inventive experience, DeLuzio helps them think differently about how to optimize their approach systemwide.

His new book is: Flatlined: Why Lean Transformations Fail and What to Do About It. Learn more at and
