Lean for the Office: Italian

Lean isn’t just for the shop floor anymore.

While Lean is most often thought of as a tool for improving manufacturing production, manufacturers who employ Kaizen in their offices routinely improve their productivity two- or threefold. Whether you work in human resources, purchasing, order entry, customer service, R & D or accounting, all administrative functions can be improved using the principles of Continuous Improvement. Once you and your employees realize that waste exists in these operations too, you and your team can begin to identify all of the opportunities for streamlining administrative processes to produce a significantly more efficient office.
