What is lean?

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.

In theory, a Lean organization should:

See every problem and mistake as an opportunity to streamline processes

Value the customer experience above all else

Promote a culture of problem-solving and open communication between teams at all levels, whereby employees feel valued and invested

Skills Insight Tools

Where can Lean be applied?

Lean can be applied in every industry of all sizes and in all sectors from Engineering, Lifesciences, Food production to Services and Software development. While the Lean business model originated in the manufacturing industry, it can be applied to knowledge work too. Lean is a way of thinking which can be applied in any business environment, unlike other business methodologies with hard and fast rules.
