The utility and impact of lean principles remains a point of contention (Staats et al, 2011) and few research studies have attempted to link lean project management (LPM) thinking with overall learning and knowledge success from a behavioural perspective (Hines et al, 2004). Those who have done so, have used lean project management principles to highlight singular process-related, task-driven systems and identify barriers in improving operational procedures (Spear, 2005; Poksinska, 2010; Staats et al, 2011) rather than investigating the potential link between desired outcomes and behaviours (Nidumolu & Subramani, 2003). Such studies have limited the progress of LPM as a viable change initiative in solution-focused environments. In this paper, we explore the utility of lean project management against a background of complexity and uncertainty and consider if, and how, LPM can facilitate learning within organisations to establish and sustain improvements for economic success.
