About Lean Process Improvement

Every organization is a collection of processes. These processes are the natural business activities you perform that produce value, serve customers and generate results. Many organizations follow dated policies and procedures because of the tradition of "that's how it's always been done." Process improvement techniques can greatly increase productivity and efficiency and/or reduce the cost of operations by eliminating waste and non- value added steps and uncovering the root causes of systematic quality issues. In most cases, only a small percent of all activities supporting business processes add value for customers and end-users.
