Abstract

It is evident that lean production variations have been applied by a wide array of private companies as well as public and third sector organizations in countries worldwide. Janoski and Lepadatu (2014) have even noted that lean is becoming a dominant division of labour, replacing gradually Taylorism and Fordism. We take this notion as the starting point in this chapter and examine the diffusion of lean and some other forms of work organization in Europe and the USA.
