About the Reference Model
The free Leading with Obeya - Reference Model is used in two ways:
1. To discuss all aspects of leadership in a general fashion
2. To help explain, build and improve your Obeya as a means to support the translation of strategy to meaningful work and results on a Monday morning.
The Leading With Obeya - Reference Model captures the visible and invisible elements of the workings in an Obeya designed for leading the organization.
Obeya means 'Big Room' in Japanese, originates from Toyota and entails a way of working for management that is heavily supported by visual management. Its strength comes from the power of visual management, combined with scientific thinking and developing people.
The reference model makes Lean and Agile principles relatively easy to adopt, using a 'scrum'-like clarity on rituals, techniques and principles for anybody in a leadership position in any type of organization.
In essence, through the reference model and book, organizations can implement and improve their leadership system.
