Being a successful business demands utilizing resources to create greater value. Commonly known as doing business “the Lean way,” it’s about defining value as perceived by the customer – what the customer is willing to pay for – and then improving that value by eliminating waste and optimizing processes. When value increases, market share can increase as well. Lean eliminates waste in all aspects of business, including engineering, finance, production, manufacturing and the supply chain. It works to shape company culture into a learning organization that focuses on continuous improvement, problem solving, teamwork, and developing the workforce. Companies that implement Lean at their facilities have been known to have huge increases in productivity, significant cost reductions, improved quality, and delivery. One of Sinclair’s clients actually experienced a 92% improvement in productivity.
