Lean Enterprise is a process designed to bring about rapid, step-change improvements to the performance of an organization through an overhaul of the value stream. It is comprised of a comprehensive set of elements, rules and tools that focus on value, the elimination of waste and continuous incremental improvement.
As the market forces dictate pricing and lead time pressures, businesses need to focus on waste-free processes in order to grow margins and remain competitive.
Lean primarily focuses on the relentless elimination of waste from all business activities. This is achieved through the use of specific concepts that are intended to provide excellent quality products, delivered on time, at the lowest total cost, and only on the specific demand of the customer.
Companies transitioning to a Lean culture are now seeing radical improvements in profitability, service levels, productivity, asset utilization, cash flow, inventory levels, changeover times, product designs, quality, cycle times and product costs.
Lean Mastery contains clear, concise information on transforming an enterprise to Lean. It is packed with examples, photographs, graphics, quizzes, progress tests, case studies and many interactive features that provide tips, "try this" exercises and in-depth information. The program contains 60 hours of study that covers all of the Lean Enterprise concepts and was authored by people who have successful, hands-on, practical worldwide experience
