Lean Thinking

Lean – remove waste and increase customer value

Lean thinking is a mindset – a way of viewing the world. Lean is about focus, removing waste, and increasing customer value. Establishing value allows organizations to create a top-down target price. The cost to produce the products and services is then determined. The organization focuses on eliminating waste so that they can deliver the value the customer expects at the highest level of profitability.

Lean is about smooth process flows, doing only those activities that add customer value and eliminating all other activities that don’t. If it doesn’t add value then it must add cost.

Find most used Lean tools: Kaizen, 5S, SMED, Root Cause Analysis, Kanban, Value Stream Mapping, PDCA, from a big toolbox that you can use as needed to reduce waste.

Lean and Data Driven Decision-Making 

Data-driven decision making (DDDM) is an approach to business governance that values decisions that can be backed up with verifiable data rather than making decisions that are intuitive or based on observation alone, supporting competitive advantage. 

The success of the data-driven approach is reliant upon the quality of the data gathered and the effectiveness of its analysis and interpretation.  

Business intelligence tools are a strong resource to analyze the data and allow easy dashboards customization to display the important information in real time. The changes in how data can be mined and visualized allows business executives who have no technology backgrounds to be able to work with analytics tools and make data-driven decisions.
