"Today, our processes and organizations are becoming more and more complex. The Lean Brain Theory provides both the necessary theoretical background and a fully tested in practice approach to enable corporations to cope with such process and organizational complexity." -Steffen Scheuring Head of Lean Management Global Manufacturing & Quality EMEA/LA Fresenius Medical Care Deutschland GmbH "Learning is a process and processes need time, especially in complex and ever changing environments. Time is the most important critical success factor. The Hoshin Kanri Forest and The Lean Brain Theory helped me and my organization learn faster and more effectively by embedding complexity within our organizational design configuration. An outstanding WOW effect!" -Franz Obermeier, Head of Filling Technology, Bottling Technology Krones AG "This book challenges the reader by combining state of the art neurobiological knowledge, lean strategic organizational design, artificial intelligence models to effectively compute today's business complexity and the mathematical approach needed to build an actionable strategy in practice. The scientific lean management concepts outlined in The Lean Brain Theory are likely to game-change the way collective organizational alignment is understood." -Prof. Dr.-Ing. Joaquin Ordieres-Mere, Expert in Big Data and Business Intelligence, Universidad Politecnica de Madrid "The Lean Brain Theory of Organization Design using the brain as metaphor is a provocative statement and a challenge. It builds upon traditional theory of information processing, but goes beyond to formalize a network communications approach. In the author's own words: I introduced the concept of Lean Structural Network (LSN) and Lean Functional Networks (LFN). Both LSNs and LFNs are directed networks in which the nodes N are the people forming the organization and the edges are respectively the lean oriented business communication standard patterns (CPD)nA for LSN and the actions in the Do phase for LFN. This network model captures informational relations and connectivity correlation matrices. Traditional issues, such as learning, culture, leadership, power, and strategic problem solving are discussed informally, but also formally within the model. The Lean Brain Theory can be read on two levels: the first is a rich informal narrative - a personal statement, and the second is the more formal model with mathematical formulations and detailed explanatory charts. With the implications for management the lean brain theory provokes academics and practitioners alike to rethink organization design concepts in a new way." -Richard M. Burton, Professor Emeritus of Strategy and Organization. The Fuqua School of Business, Duke University
