Implementing Lean methodologies does not mean adopting an ideal model overnight, but choosing an approach that will transform the company. Enabling it to beat the competition by providing the customers with what they want, when they want it and with the quality they expect. By reducing the amount of time resources are wasted on activities that don’t add value to the product or service, Lean Thinking constantly seeks to reduce waste, optimizing resources and leading to greater customer satisfaction.
Beginning to understand the organization is the first step toward an integrated management of company processes.
