  • Lean will visualise your work place so you can see where the problems are and the status of each customers product or service through an organised work place.
  • It has to be led from the top down with most deployment being on the shop floor although the principals work throughout the business.
  • If this approach has not been used before expect in excess of 20% efficiency increases.
