The Four R’s: A Model to Transition to Lean Thinking


When Agile coaches Nidhi Sharma and Michael Callahan are looking at changing someone’s mindset and changing the way that they behave and work, they want to start with a purpose. The pair tied it all together in their Four R’s model for transitioning to Lean thinking:

  • Why are we doing this work? (Right Reasons)
  • What work would fit that purpose? (Right Work)
  • Who needs to be in the room to have those conversations? (Right People)
  • What is the last responsible moment for doing the work? (Right Time)
