Abstract

The researchers examined the nature of relationship between lean manufacturing and performance of select brewing firms in South-South, Nigeria. The study was anchored on Resource Based View Theory postulated by Wernerfelt (1984). Survey design was used, questionnaire was the data collection tool employed, a population of 311 was used for the study. The entire population (complete enumeration sampling) was used by the researchers and ordinary least square regression analysis was used to analyse the collected data. Findings of the study revealed that the relationship between total quality management and industry leadership is significant and positive. This led to the researchers concluding that there exists a strong significant positive relationship between lean manufacturing and performance of brewing firms in South-South, Nigeria. The researchers suggested that management and employees of the studied firms should ensure that quality inputs/raw materials are used for the manufacturing process as it affects the industry leadership of the focused brewing firms.
