Lean Training and Consulting
A Lean business focuses on optimizing the process and reducing the waste. Lean methodologies aim to streamline the process and produce the best results. Lean training is recommended because Lean methodologies help an organization achieve its goals in smarter and more sustainable ways.
A Lean business is rooted in seven principles: Optimize, Eliminate waste, Build quality, Deliver fast, Create knowledge, Defer commitment, Respect people.
The best thing about Lean is that it is easier to understand and all employees can be involved. Therefore, many companies prefer Lean Training and consulting as their first choice for business improvement.
Anexas has worked with over 500 companies and implemented Lean, which has saved millions of dollars.
Lean-based thinking can help management understand what customers value most and where it makes the most sense to focus improvements in operations and service levels. Improved organizational engagement via lean particularly among the frontline staff can lead to increased morale and reduced attrition.
Successful lean-transformation effort can instil a firm wide mindset of self-reliance and continuous improvement, one that keeps performance on an upward trajectory. Reduced costs and fewer errors are just the tips of the iceberg. Banks that implement successful Lean programs often see a 15% to 25% improvement in overall efficiency.
Reductions in cycle time can result in a 30% to 60% improvement. Lean thinking can help leaders understand which customer segments are most profitable and where services can be enriched most cost-effectively. An organization can minimize the seven wastes in processes: overproduction, waiting, transportation, over-processing, inventory, defects, and motion, which leads to increase in human potential.
Another essential part of the Lean philosophy is to focus on what matters to the customer. If a process or activity doesn’t deliver value for which the customer is willing to pay, it should be eliminated if possible. It is easy for people to develop ideas about what is essential to the customer based on an incomplete understanding or limited knowledge. Lean thinking helps solve this by eliminating silos and examining the flow of value from a broader perspective.
