What is lean? Is it a philosophy? Is it a culture or practice? A set of tools?
Well actually it’s all of these! It’s a holistic approach to changing your culture and changing how people view their work and address issues to go from firefighting to being proactive and taking care of problems.
Lean is about working smarter, not harder. It’s a continuous improvement approach that optimizes value by reducing waste. Elimination of waste is the key aspect of lean so you can improve the flow of processes throughout the organization.
