The Need for Lean
A current driving force for many companies is the need to becomelean. Lean is a broad topic and, simply put, means systematicallyeliminating waste and minutiae from business processes. It is allabout speed in today’s economy. How quickly can I make a qualityproduct or provide a world class service? How quickly can I deliver (on time) to the customer? If I make an array of products or providea multitude of services, how quickly can I change my process toefficiently meet changing demands of my customers?Some companies seek to become lean because of dictates fromtheir industry. To be a market player, you must become lean tocompete. Others join the fray because it is the language of the day.But make no mistake, there is a global race to eliminate waste andbecome more efficient. Call it lean or just plain processimprovement. Those who fail or fall behind may have a tough roadahead in the current business climate.
