Who should take ownership of lean projects that impact different areas of the value chain?

In case all areas belong to the same company, I think the general manager should conduct the lean projects.
In case we have many companies, the end customer should take the ownership.

Indeed the basic answer is the head of the enterprise. He/she can delegate, but ultimately this position is responsible for profitability, and thus effectiveness of lean project.

There is always a sponsor for lean projects in the organisation. The sponsor should be the one who takes ownership of the lean projects and its results.
The sponsor is continuously monitoring the progress of the projects and provides necessary support to the lean team. Without full support from a sponsor, it will be extremely difficult to successfully complete lean projects in any organisation.
