What is Lean Transformation?

What about lean transformation, members of the management team want to focus more on lean transformation rather than on lean manufacturing. What are your views on this?

Lean Transformation..

First of all, it is tricky to react on words when the definition of these words is not clear. Lean manufacturing is part of a lean transformation, I suppose.
I understand that management team members have the 'feeling' that the focus should not be on manufacturing but on transformation throughout the whole value stream. This should not be a feeling but a result of an analysis. Value stream mapping will provide the needed facts and figures to decide for the next steps and their priority.
Also hoshin kanri, a3 reporting, catch ball... Could help to make things clear and aligned.
