Abstract [en]

Purpose - The purpose was to examine the relationship between Lean values, Lean leadership and perceived co-worker health.Methodology/approach – A questionnaire used at a Swedish municipality that has been working with quality improvements for 20 years and with Lean for seven years was analyzed. More than 800 co-workers were asked to fill in the questionnaire which had been designed and earlier tested to measure the presence of a number of Lean values and Lean leadership as well as self-reported perceived health.Findings – The results show a medium positive relationship between Lean values, Lean leadership and the co-workers’ perception of their health. Customer focus presents the highest mean value, the lowest standard deviation and the highest correlation with co-worker health, which is interesting as the investigated organization is a municipality.
