  1. Gain an objective understanding of where you stand relative to your Lean management standards.
  2. Identify the specific areas where you need to focus your efforts to improve.
  3. A useful and visible tool to help you achieve faster Lean deployment.


It is a good practice to periodically assess the overall status of your Lean implementation. The Lean Management System Assessment is based on the application of plan, do, check, act (PDCA) thinking embedded in Lean, an idea derived from the Lean principle of pursuit of perfection.

This is a simple and practical tool to assess the overall status of your Lean management implementation. The eight dimensions of assessment are evaluated across five levels of maturity. Together, they cover process and behavior and serve as standards for your organization, business unit and/or sub-unit to strive toward Lean excellence.

NOTE: This assessment package consists of:
1. Lean Management Assessment guide (PowerPoint format)
2. Lean Management Assessment Worksheets (PowerPoint format)
3. Radar Chart (for score profiling, Excel format)


1. The dimensions and questions themselves should help to clarify what you are working toward, for yourself and for the rest of your organization.
2. An assessment should tell you where you stand relative to your standards and relative to your earlier status.
3. The results of an assessment will help you identify where you need to focus efforts to improve.
