Introduction to Lean Management
When we think about improving productivity, we often think about looking for technological solutions that involve major investments in equipment. That’s perfectly logical, because we’ve all learned that productivity means producing more with less. But what if that wasn’t necessarily the only solution? Why not focus on people instead?
LEAN management creates a community of people focused on creating value for the customer and achieving productivity gains by concentrating on the continuous improvement of processes and drawing on the knowledge and expertise of the workforce.
LEAN management is a tried and tested approach that is recognised for delivering the following results:
- Improved customer satisfaction
- Employee involvement
- Alignment of strategy within the organisation
- Improved productivity
- Acquisition of organisational knowledge
- Improved working capital
- Optimisation of return on investment and
- Stimulation of innovation.
By encouraging employees to work in teams and think creatively, teams are empowered to design innovative solutions and this also opens the door to multiple process improvements and technological developments.
“Lean is much more than the sum of its tools.” Translated from Landry & Beaulieu, 2016
