First of all, there is no standard way. Each company has to go his own way, based on his own culture, people, market and so on.
Then, before the start management and staff should understand very well the thinking behind lean. I would suggest to read 'Lean Thinking' Womack and Jones (surely the first 100 pages) in order to understand the basic concept of value - valuestream - flow - pull - ci.
Also I suggest to read - but this can be in the implementation phase - 'The Toyota Way'.
Be sure that management and staff is aware and motivated to go ahead.
