Change Agent

The leader of a lean conversion who has the willpower and drive to initiate fundamental change and make it stick.

The change agent—who often comes from outside the organization—doesn't need detailed lean knowledge at the beginning of the conversion. The knowledge can come from a lean expert, but the change agent absolutely needs the will to see that the knowledge is applied and becomes the new way of working.
