Lean thinking is about creating the most value for the customer at very little cost, achievable through reducing resources, time, energy and cost. Lean tools and techniques are helping companies across the globe to address competitiveness issues within their businesses, building the capability of their people to identify issues and improve their operations. Lean for Micro is designed to encourage businesses to adopt Lean business principles in their organisations to increase competitiveness. The key to becoming and remaining competitive is Lean: the relentless pursuit of value to the customer.

What is Lean?

Lean is about being effective and efficient - doing things quicker, better, cheaper…together.  Lean strives to stamp out waste and to continually improve. Lean requires that individuals, teams and the entire organisation remain continuously focussed on the customer, adopting a practical approach to increasing value to the customer by the relentless elimination of every form of unnecessary waste. Lean is a way of thinking and acting that enables people to drive the organisation forward.  It increases capability and capacity, and is the catalyst for innovation. Lean helps ensure flexibility, responsiveness, efficiency, innovation and by continuously listening to the customer allows companies to compete and win on merit.
