Want better products, delivered in shorter times and at a lower cost? No, it is not just a dream.
With Lean management, you can have all three.
At its core, the philosophy of Lean management is to maximize customer value while minimizing waste. It is one of the most popular management systems and for good reason – no matter which industry you are in, Lean is a universal tool that can have a positive impact on any company’s performance.
It is not just a quick business hack – it is an entire business philosophy that has been around for decades and can have dramatic impacts on your business, from top to bottom.
In short, it can radically improve your business.
While Lean seems particularly well suited to manufacturing type companies like Toyota, it doesn’t matter what type of business you run. Lean is a universal management tool that can have a positive impact on any company’s performance, whether you run a PR company, produce high-tech software or run a service business in the healthcare industry.
Lean focuses on the entire business – not just the manufacturing of a product – so it does not matter whether your business has a physical product or not. Unlike other management systems, Lean improves the entire value stream and not just an isolated point in the chain, which makes it easily replicable between business types.
