The adoption of lean principles and behaviours follow from a commitment to a belief that the supply chain can be re-engineered, and to the selection of lean thinking as the most appropriate design.  This may involve challenging existing mindsets, as systems that ‘push’ stock into the supply chain require everyone in the supply chain to ‘buy in’ to a new way of thinking.  See also Agility.
