Lean is a philosophy designed to bring about rapid, planned, controlled and measured step-change improvements to the performance of an organization through an overhaul of the value stream. It utilizes a comprehensive set of elements, rules and tools that focus on value as perceived by the customer, the elimination of waste and continuous incremental improvement.
Lean is not just for manufacturing. It's for ALL processes - in financial institutions, health care organizations, education, manufacturing and service providers. If you have processes, you can benefit from Lean!
