Abstract [en]

The ways of coping with the complexity of implementing lean production in Multinational Corporation diverge. Successful knowledge transfer within corporations’ network of production plants is of major importance. One way to roll out programs with changes rapidly is through top management commitment. The paper reports from an industrial case study exploring the characteristics, as well as issues and success factors, of a roll-out program to implement a standard. Important factors were identified, such as early involvement of stakeholders, type of knowledge transferred, involvement at both group and individual level, and to secure external deliveries prior to initiation of the program.
