Can portfolio, programme and project management be effective in lean management implementation?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


P3 methodologies have been evolving over the last three decades and robust approaches are available for adoption by organisations. The challenges which organisations face in the implementation of LM and usually contribute to a failure of programmes, can be addressed by a P3 approach. The purpose of this paper is to propose the adoption of Portfolio, Programme and Project (P3) methodologies for implementation of lean management (LM) programmes. The P3 approach is discussed in relation to implementation of LM programmes.
This is a conceptual paper which is based on the review of existing literature within the fields of Lean Management/manufacturing and Portfolio, Project and Programme Management. The proposed use of P3 methodologies can serve as a framework for practitioners selecting LM projects, in line with strategic objectives of the organisation, and assist in capturing success. This paper also expands current thinking on governance and management of LM initiatives by proposing the use of P3 methodologies and suggests how the proposed framework can become a workable tool.
