Most Lean Transformation efforts focus on bringing about changes to the front line operations and motivating the front line staff to become more involved with the improvement of daily workflow.  The importance of the role of middle management staff which includes supervisors, managers and technical staff in this transformation are often overlooked.  The lack of understanding of their role is a key factor in unsuccessful transformation efforts.  A focus on proper education and role definition for the middle management team will increase the chance of successful Lean transformation.
