Create Lean Environments
“Order is the shape upon which beauty depends.” -Pearl S. Buck
The Lean Method addresses flow. Creating environments that are orderly, useful and clutter free. Based on the 5S technique to clear the clutter and organize a system that is easy for you to find what you need to do your work.
Work is not done for work sake. It’s not the activity that is measured, but the results. People are most important asset. Assess the employees’ personality and work environment habits. Match up talent and skill set with job requirements. Provide clear instruction, relevant training and S.M.A.R.T. goals that will track an employee’s progress.
Manage processes not people. Develop a cultural “think lean” viewpoint. Give people a chance to grow in their career path. Inspire innovation, create a dynamic business culture and watch profits soar.
What is Lean?
It is a methodology, a philosophy, a framework, a science and a practice. These concepts as they apply to an organization, were developed in the auto manufacturing world and coined by a group of researchers studying how the Toyota Motor Company ran their mass production processes.
Toyota "lean" system required less energy and resources to create and service their products. Their process system produced fewer defects with fewer suppliers than their competitors. Cycle time in all of their key processes required less time and effort. The researchers concluded that Toyota used less to produce more.
Lean is a path. It is a way of life. It is a strategy that uses less, wastes less and gives you more. More knowledge. More agility. More productivity.

“Order and simplification are the first steps toward the mastery of a subject.”-Thomas Mann
