Illuminate the World


Lean equips every single employee with the tools to provide utmost value to the customer. Each and every member of the organization has the power to raise the level of quality your business delivers. Your business has the power to influence the lives of others.

Use your light to kindle not only your co-worker's light, but your friend, your sibling, your spouse's light and watch as the world around you illuminates.

Misperceptions of Lean

One of the biggest hurdles to getting buy-in for Lean is the misperceptions of what Lean Thinking actually is.

This is not necessarily Lean
Lean is NOT:

• Only about cutting overhead

• Only 5S – this is a tool that Lean organizations utilize

• Only for manufacturing

• Simply setting up assembly lines or work cells

• Uncomfortable work conditions to save money


Lean IS:

• A philosophy that considers value for the customer as the most important aspect of the business

• Removal of waste in all its forms from business processes

• A culture of collective continuous improvement

• Constantly building a work environment (the physical and psychological aspects) that promotes efficiency

• A belief that the actions of every single member of an organization makes a difference; cooperation is vital

• Respect for people


What are some misperceptions of Lean at your organization? Share with us in the comments area below.
