Lean Tools, Training, and Systems

Before learning how to use your templates, you might first ask 'Why?'

1) Why Lean Process Improvement?

Before learning how, start by learning why:

  1. What Lean Principles underlie the "why" of every tool and method?
  2. What are the 8 types of deadly wastes that every lean tool and method seeks to reduce or eliminate?
  3. Why is it impossible to "be lean" without standard work, lean flow, and culturally ingrained systems for problem solving?
