The goal of Lean is the unimpeded flow of goods and services to customers, achieved through waste elimination. Lean focuses on process velocity. If there is one hallmark feature of Lean . . . it is its simplicity. There is no heavy math, obscure concepts, or difficult to implement techniques. At first glance, Lean is deceivingly simple – don't be fooled; Lean is an extremely powerful methodology.
Its beginnings are credited to Toyota, implemented in its Toyota Production System. Indeed the simplicity of Lean and a rigor around its application, have propelled Toyota into the top tier of automobile manufacturers in the world. And other manufacturers have taken notice. As lean thinking spreads, organizations are adapting the tools and principles beyond manufacturing and into logistics, distribution, services, retail, healthcare, construction, maintenance, data management, and government.
This module introduces the reader to Lean. A brief history of Lean is given followed by a comparison of Lean versus mass production. Value added is then defined. A list of Lean tools is presented and the seven wastes are introduced along with an easy to remember mnemonic.
Lean uses the DMAIC methodology. The 15 steps of the DMAIC Roadmap are covered, as well as the purpose and outputs of each of the 5 phases of DMAIC. When completed, you will have an understanding of the principles of Lean, the 7 Wastes, and the DMAIC methodology. This material is suitable for independent study, executive briefing or formal classroom training including quiz questions.
Comes with 6 Excel templates: 7 Wastes, 5S, VSM, 5Why's, A3, SMED

"As a young consulting firm, requests for input from clients vary and it's sometimes impossible to provide expert solutions across a broad spectrum of requirements. That was before I discovered Flevy.com.
Through subscription to this invaluable site of a plethora of topics that are key and crucial to consulting, I have been able to exceed expectations and deliver quality advice and solutions to my clients. The quality and expertise of the authors are exemplary and gives me great confidence to use as part of my service offerings.
I highly recommend this company for any consultant wanting to apply international best practice standards in their service offerings. "
– Nishi Singh, Strategist and MD at NSP Consultants
"[Flevy] produces some great work that has been/continues to be of immense help not only to myself, but as I seek to provide professional services to my clients, it give me a large "tool box" of resources that are critical to provide them with the quality of service and outcomes they are expecting."
– Royston Knowles, Executive with 50+ Years of Board Level Experience
"The wide selection of frameworks is very useful to me as an independent consultant. In fact, it rivals what I had at my disposal at Big 4 Consulting firms in terms of efficacy and organization."
– Julia T., Consulting Firm Owner (Former Manager at Deloitte and Capgemini)
"I have found Flevy to be an amazing resource and library of useful presentations for lean sigma, change management and so many other topics. This has reduced the time I need to spend on preparing for my performance consultation. The library is easily accessible and updates are regularly provided. A wealth of great information."
– Cynthia Howard RN, PhD, Executive Coach at Ei Leadership
"As a small business owner, the resource material available from FlevyPro has proven to be invaluable. The ability to search for material on demand based our project events and client requirements was great for me and proved very beneficial to my clients. Importantly, being able to easily edit and tailor the material for specific purposes helped us to make presentations, knowledge sharing, and toolkit development, which formed part of the overall program collateral. While FlevyPro contains resource material that any consultancy, project or delivery firm must have, it is an essential part of a small firm or independent consultant's toolbox."
– Michael Duff, Managing Director at Change Strategy (UK)
"I have used Flevy services for a number of years and have never, ever been disappointed. As a matter of fact, David and his team continue, time after time, to impress me with their willingness to assist and in the real sense of the word. I have concluded in fact that it is not at all just a repository of documents/resources but, in the way that David and his team manage the firm, it is like dealing with consultants always ready to assist, advise and direct you to what you really need, and they always get it right.
I am an international hospitality accomplished senior executive who has worked and lived during the past 35 years in 23 countries in 5 continents and I can humbly say that I know what customer service is, trust me.
Aside from the great and professional service that Flevy's team provide, their wide variety of material is of utmost great quality, professionally put together and most current.
Well done Flevy, keep up the great work and I look forward to continue working with you in the future and to recommend you to a variety of colleagues around the world."
– Roberto Pelliccia, Senior Executive in International Hospitality
