LeanStorming Principles

Leadership principles are values and beliefs that guide the actions and behaviors of a leader. The LeanStorming™ principles have been distilled from years of trial and error in the practice of leading teams using the LEAN philosophy. 

1. The harmony of Why

"Those who have a 'why' to live, can bear with almost any 'how'" — Viktor E. Frankl '

Cultural harmony refers to the state of peaceful coexistence and mutual respect among individuals and groups with diverse cultural backgrounds and traditions. LeanStorming™ Culture harmony is characterized by open-mindedness, tolerance, and acceptance of diversity.


2. Creative Adaptation

Creative adaptation refers to the ability to adapt and make creative use of new or changing information, resources, or situations. It is a process of creatively and flexibly responding to new challenges and opportunities, rather than sticking to a set plan or routine. It involves being open to new ideas and perspectives and being able to think outside the box to come up with innovative solutions.

LeanStorming™ model of creative adaptation is an important skill in today's fast-paced and ever-changing world, as it allows individuals and organizations to stay relevant and competitive. It helps to be more agile and responsive, and it enables one to take advantage of new opportunities and overcome challenges.

3. Are we wining today? 

Short-term winning refers to achieving success or victories in the immediate or near future. In business, short-term winning may refer to achieving specific, time-limited goals, such as increasing sales or market share or launching a new product. It may also refer to achieving quick, tactical victories over competitors, such as winning a contract or outmaneuvering a rival in the marketplace. Short-term winning is often seen as a necessary step towards achieving long-term success, as it can provide momentum and motivation, and can help to build the necessary skills, experience, and resources for achieving long-term goals. LeanStorming™ will help you balance short-term wins with long-term strategic planning, in order to avoid sacrificing long-term sustainability for short-term gains.

4. Are we in the long Game?

The long game refers to a strategic approach that focuses on achieving long-term goals and objectives, rather than short-term wins or gains. The long game is often contrasted with a short-term, reactive approach, in which decisions are made based on immediate needs or circumstances, without considering the potential long-term consequences. LeanStorming™ will help you uncover the benefits of playing the long game like:

  • Greater sustainability and long-term success.

  • Improved resilience and adaptability

  • Enhanced reputation and trust.

  • Increased innovation and creativity

  • Greater alignment and engagement.


5. Are we Fit for what is coming?

There is a big difference between a team and a group. A high-performance team works well together and is able to consistently produce excellent results. These teams are characterized by a number of qualities, such as a shared sense of purpose, clear goals and objectives, good communication and collaboration, and a commitment to ongoing learning and improvement. With LeanStorming proprietary playground exercises, your team will learn and practice the roles and skills needed to become a high performant team.
