Lean Manufacturing is a leadership philosophy, a management system and a set of tactical tools that, when universally implemented, is the single-most powerful strategy for improving a production operation’s competitiveness.

The benefits of Lean can drive a wide range of outcomes, including:

  • Reductions in material and process waste, inventory levels and quality defects
  • Increased asset utilization, cycle time, throughput and overall capacity
  • Enabled enterprise objectives such as aggressive cost reduction, growth and integration strategies

To achieve these kinds of results, we keep a few fundamentals front and center: First, ensuring management shares their vision of both the what and the how. Second, proactively addressing the organization’s natural resistance to change. And third, developing a complete strategy that integrates the use of tool and change-management approaches.
