Lean Introduction for Leaders

Lean Introduction for Leaders

Lean Introduction for Leaders examines the 5 Lean principles.  Certainly, these principles establish value (as seen by your customers) and identify value streams.  In addition, they make these streams flow (reduce lead times), respond to market demand and pursue perfection in standard operations.

Above all, this concept focuses on eliminating waste in processes.  Waste being anything that impedes the flow of a product or service as it is being delivered.  Lean Business is about ensuring that customer requirements are understood and processes are optimised by engaging all staff.  Furthermore, it delivers value and eliminate waste from those processes.  Thereby, this approach delivers a win-win-win for the business, clients and employees.
