Lean works, and it will impact every single fiber of your organization’s operational fabric. It will be woven into your quality, productivity, service, customer satisfaction, safety, growth, and financial processes. Lean is not people dependent, it is process dependent, built upon standards and consistency. It exposes waste and promotes value, enabling you to realize capacity and capabilities you never knew existed.
