Leadership as ScienceBeginning in 1994, I began to deconstruct the art of Lean leadership with an initial focus on behaviors and identified the eighth waste, Behavioral Waste®. From there, I showed the relationship between leadership beliefs, behaviors, and competencies using current and future state value steam maps. This bridged the gap between leadership as art and leadership as science. I went on to create the science of leadership by identifying 15 leadership processes, common errors in each process, and how to improve the processes. That's innovative Lean leadership!
