Lean Process Improvement
Sustainable Value - Healthier Bottom Line - Better Business Culture
What is Lean Methodology?
Lean methodology is a way of optimizing the people, resources, effort, and energy of your organization to create greater value for the customer.
In short, a Lean business is a business that maximizes value while minimizing waste.
The concept of Lean methodology in business is based on two guiding tenets; continuous improvement and respect for people.
Teams all over the world, from sales to software development, are using Lean methodology principles to achieve three things;
Deliver sustainable value to their customers - eliminating wasteful tasks allows more time for value drive service
Build a healthier, bottom line in their organizations - creating financial stability ensures longevity and future growth
Improve their overall business culture - optimizing workflow encourages professional growth and enables a clear vision and united leadership
What is Process?
Kaizen is a Japanese term meaning "change for the better" or "continuous improvement.
Kaizen refers to business activities that continuously improve all functions and involve all employees from the CEO to the assembly line workers. Kaizen is a strategy used to implement Lean Methodology.
There are five key elements of Kaizen:
Self - discipline
Quality circles - effective working environments
The Kaizen approach is based on the idea that small, ongoing positive changes can reap major improvements. Typically, it is based on cooperation and commitment and stands in contrast to approaches that use radical changes or top-down edicts to achieve transformation.
Continual small improvements add up to major benefits. They result in improved productivity, improved quality, better safety, faster delivery, lower costs, and greater customer satisfaction.
