Study-Action Teams™

Developed by colleagues at Lean Project Consulting Study-Action Teams (SAT) use other people's learning - often in the form of a book - as the basis for thinking about what they do, what they want to be different and developing a strategic change agenda.

SATs are a great way to kick start a lean transformation or a project because they help align aspirations.

There are standard work methods for:

  • reading the book
  • discussing the key points and their relevance to the readers' organisation or project
  • agreeing the strategic change agenda for the organisation or project
