Lean is all about maximising value for the customer, whilst minimizing waste of all kinds. Lean methodologies focus on increasing productivity, quality, profit, capacity, and standardization while decreasing defects, lead time, cost, inventory, and waste. Adopting Lean methodologies can help teams and organizations achieve their goals in smarter, more sustainable ways. A Lean organization focuses its key processes on continuously improving customer value, through a zero-waste value creation process. Shifting the focus of management from optimizing separate technologies, departments, and assets to optimizing the flow of products and services through entire value steams that flow horizontally across technologies, departments and assets is what Lean thinking aims to accomplish. Lean thinking allows companies to adapt to changing customer needs and wants much quicker than traditional business thinking.
