Why Structured LEAN?

After working with a number of LEAN Practitioners over many years with different companies at various levels from numerous industries and countries, we’ve come across many who have had varying degrees of success throughout the assorted stages of implementation.  Most of them, I imagine like yourself, is committed to gaining the maximum benefits of what lean can provide – both individually, as well as for the company organization you’re a part of.  You strive to learn, and implement the tools and methods.  As a result of your efforts, you want to see tangible evidence from your improvements, and reap the rewards of achieving your desired results.

However, something seems to be lacking (and maybe it’s more than one of these items):

  • I feel overwhelmed!  There seems to be too much to do, and not enough time to do it all.  Where do I even start?
  • Do the lean concepts and tools really apply to my industry or product?  Our product is highly complex, and we don’t make cars!
  • I understand the methods and concepts from a theoretical standpoint, but have difficulty translating the application to my specific situation.
  • We’ve started the process of implementing lean, but have stopped it (for whatever reason).  Now Management wants us to start again, and I’m not sure if I can get the team to buy-in.
  • I’m not really getting the results I want on a consistent basis, and sustaining the efforts over the long-term with my team is too difficult.

Does this sound like you?  If so, don’t worry because you’re not alone!  All of us have felt these (and more) at one time or another.

We Know How You Feel

We know what it feels like to be under pressure, with the expectation of delivering as the result of lean – to not only learn these new methods, but also implement them and achieve the results, while simultaneously working in your normal day-to-day job.

As former Toyota employees, who have also worked in different companies and industries implementing the same lean methods, we have faced your reality of this pressure.  However, we know the answer is not simply accepting the situation as it is.  There is a better and more systematic way of doing things in order to really gain the ultimate benefits of implementing lean!

The Purpose of Structured LEAN

Throughout our product and service offering, our purpose is to provide you with the clarity and structure for you to succeed in your lean journey – whether it is for your individual development, working with a team, or as part of a larger organizational implementation.

From general instructions on the fundamental terminology and introduction of the tools, to showing you real company examples with relevant templates and resources, to the development of a strategic roadmap, our primary focus will be on the practical application to empower your own capabilities.
