Using the example of Pfizer's, Terence Barnhart demonstrates that lean implementation isn't strictly for manufacturing, that it can just as effectively be implemented in an R&D organization, providing that you understand the differences that the different culture requires. Barnhart, who is a director for Pfizer's, demonstrates why the lean approach is appropriate for R & D. He explains why he believes that success is contingent on merging lean principles with the cultural virtues inherent in R & D, and shows how R&D organizations should employ a middle-out systemic approach that immediately engages all the stakeholders involved.
