Description

The advertised benefits and those being touted from numerous Lean factories today are just too great to ignore. Not only can companies save time and money and increase market share, but they can achieve product differentiation from their competitors, which is the single best reason for implementing Lean. Applied Lean Business Transformation was written for manufacturers who have taken the initiative to implement a Lean operating system but havent achieved the expected results and for those convinced of the benefits of Lean but dont know how to go about achieving a successful Lean transformation. Often, fear of a new system causes a guarded, conservative, safe, minimum-to-low risk approach to be taken. An approach to business transformation so safe that no traditional systems are challenged will no doubt result in few benefits being achieved. This valuable guide is presented in three parts. Part One explains the decision-making process for determining whether a Lean business transformation is a good solution for your enterprise. Part Two explains the mechanics of the Lean transformation process. Part Three discusses the need to change goals to support the Lean operating system with new performance measurements to re-enforce Lean throughout the enterprise. This book also includes the means for estimating realistic operational benefits, return on investment and potential increased product or service market share.
