Lean is a way of working that enables organisations to use optimal resources to achieve maximum output. Sounds like an oxymoron? Yes! Nonetheless, Lean is indeed the answer to organisations looking for the means to DO MORE with LESS!
Lean is an organisational-wide strategy that is focused on the relentless elimination of unnecessary, non-value-added activities. Any activity or process that consumes resources, adds cost or time without creating value presents an opportunity for improvement. The outcome of implementing Lean is an organisation that is nimble, competitive, flexible and responsive to market demands and needs.
The benefits of Lean deployment are: greater customer satisfaction in terms of shortened delivery or lead time, increased capacity, and quick changeover for operational flexibility and responsiveness.
Today, Lean is widely applied in manufacturing, as well as hospitals, logistics, travel, financial and government services the world over. With Lean, you will be able to dramatically improve your bottom-line through improving efficiency and speed to market.
