  1. Provides the key concepts and principles of the Lean management framework.
  2. Serves as a complementary tool for your Lean awareness or workshop session.
  3. Print the poster in A3/A4 size right out from your office copier machine.


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 poster comes in two themes: color and monochrome. Formatted in PDF and in editable PPTX, the poster can be easily printed on an A3-sized paper from an office copier machine and displayed on employee workstations, or distributed together with your workshop handouts.

The Lean Poster complements the Lean Thinking, Lean Manufacturing and Lean Office training presentation materials. It serves as a takeaway and summary of your Lean Management presentation.

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
2.1 Define value from the customer's perspective and provide what they want
2.2 Identify the value stream or process for each product or service and reduce or eliminate steps that do not add value
2.3 Align the value-added steps so they flow continuously
2.4 Allow the level of customer demand to pull the process, i.e., produce only what is ordered
2.5 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
