Lean is the state of an organisation that always strives to deliver only value to clients.
The means to achieve a Lean state is to continuously optimize the flow of value clients by developing people to collaboratively solve flow problems every day. Lean is science! In a Lean organisation, everyone is a scientist of work: every sees work, measure work and improve work collaboratively.
Lean core values : Continuous improvement and respect for people are practiced by everyone in the organization, at every level.
Lean Principles (or scientific components):
- Identify what has value from the client’s perspective
- Visualise how value flows to your client
- Optimise the flow of value (stop starting, start finishing, pull on work)
- Seek perfection
