Lean thinking improves the success of engineering program management. The successful “Siemens PM@IA” project management maturity improvement program was analyzed for the way it incorporates 43 so-called Lean Enablers. The Lean Enablers, developed at MIT, not only improve engineering program management but can also be applied in organizational change programs. An implementation approach for the Lean Enablers based on a change program is presented in this paper. The Lean Enablers are grouped into seven topical Lean Program Management themes, which are suggested to be implemented in three phases.
