Abstract

Marie Kondo has taught millions of people the art of decluttering their homes and their minds through her books and her Netflix television show. Her method, the KonMari method, blends lean ideas and 5S in a way that makes decluttering seem simple and attainable to anyone. Lots of organizations face resistance during lean project implementations, partly because with these improvement projects, underlying change management must also be carried out to maintain the new systems. This is where Marie Kondo and her KonMari method really shine, as the underlying principle is to change the mindset, rather than simply decluttering once.
