What is Lean?

Lean is the mathematical approach for streamlining both service processes and manufacturing by removing waste while continuing to deliver value to customers or clients. Lean is not just a set of tools; it stems from cultural roots which manifest in the business. A Lean Culture also called Lean Management is the foundation of improvement of Lean Process. During Lean Culture, improvement is exponentially more likely to be sustained so that a continuous improvement environment can be created in the organization. It is the combination of defining customer value, aligning around a central purpose, striving for perfection while respecting and developing employees at the same time.

A Lean Process has following characteristics:

  • A lean process is usually faster than other processes
  • It is more efficient and economical than others
  • It also delivers satisfactory quality services to customers

A Lean system can be achieved by removing waste from the processes that are no more needed to have a successful outcome for the project. After completely removing the waste, we only include those steps which are required for customer satisfaction.

What is the Lean Six Sigma process?
