On February 25, 2022, Sara Linderson presented her Licentiate thesis "Value-adding deployment of corporate lean programs in multinational production companies". This was the second licentiate seminar at KTH's campus in Södertälje.

Sara Linderson is an industrial PhD student employed at AstraZeneca, enrolled within the subject of Industrial engineering and management. 

This thesis explore how multinational corporations (MNCs) can develop their deployment strategies to add more value in the business by investigating (i) what constitutes deployment of a company-specific production system (XPS) program and (ii) how an XPS program promotes the transfer of lean-related knowledge. The qualitative research conducted was based on three empirical case studies, which all applied an intra-firm perspective within an MNC. 

Discussion leader was Professor Lars Bengtsson from University in Gävle.

Supervisors have been Prof Monica Bellgran (KTH) and Associate professor Seyoum Eshetu Birkie (KTH).
