This product (Lean Poster) is a 3-page PDF document with a supplemental PowerPoint document, which you can download immediately upon purchase.

The Lean Poster highlights the Lean Management Framework (a.k.a. the "House of TPS"), the concept of Value-added Activities and Non-value-added Activities (waste), the Eight Types of Waste, the Five Lean Principles and the generic PDCA Approach to Waste Elimination.

The Lean Poster is available in two distinct themes: a vibrant color scheme and a professional monochrome version. In both formats, the poster comes in a convenient PDF as well as an editable PPTX format, enabling effortless printing on A3/A4-sized paper from standard office copier machines. This versatile resource can be prominently displayed on employee workstations or distributed alongside Lean-related training materials.

Furthermore, the Lean Poster is an ideal supplement to Lean Thinking training presentations. It serves as a valuable takeaway, summarizing the core principles of Lean and reinforcing the key takeaways from your training.

The Lean Poster provides a description of the key Lean Concepts and Principles. It includes:

1. The Lean Management Framework
Includes the five "pillars" such as Stability, Standardization, Just-In-Time, Jidoka and Involvement

2. The Five Lean Principles
•  Define value from the customer's perspective and provide what they want
•  Identify the value stream or process for each product or service and reduce or eliminate steps that do not add value
•  Align the value-added steps so they flow continuously
•  Allow the level of customer demand to pull the process, i.e., produce only what is ordered
•  Pursue perfection through continuous improvement

3. The Eight Types of Waste
Over-production, Waiting, Motion, Transportation, Inventory, Defects, Over-processing and Intellectual waste

4. Value-added Activities vs. Non-value-added Activities
•  Value-added activities
•  Non-value-added activities: Incidental waste
•  Non-value-added activities: Pure Waste

5. The PDCA Approach to Waste Elimination
•  Eight-step PDCA problem-solving process
