Does Lean Production Sacrifice Learning in a Manufacturing Environment? An Action Learning Case Study.
Scott, Fiona M.; Butler, Jim; Edwards, John
Studies in Continuing Education, v23 n2 p229-41 Nov 2001

The meaning of work in this organizational culture excluded all practices, such as reflection, that were not visible and targeted at immediate production needs. (Contains 27 references.) (SK)
