Few apparel manufacturing units of National Capital Region (NCR) have started the journey generating a whole lot of success stories with big difference in terms of delivering real business profits and performances, while others are still hesitant and struggling in their traditional setup. As lean is all about bringing operational, organizational learning and cultural change in the manufacturing environment of an organization, it is very important to have an understanding of the organizational factors responsible for its smooth implementation.
