The Lean Audit allows you to determine operational health and maturity level by assessing people, processes, and systems, so you can make an accurate comparison between the existing con guration and industry best practices. Insights gained from the Lean Audit will help you identify the opportunities and course-corrections that ultimately lead to higher performance levels, while gaining a competitive edge from a leaner operation. All you need is a copy of the Lean Audit, a clear mind and sharp eyes, and the determination to make use of the tools and techniques to attain dramatic results. The program outlined in the Lean Audit is generic enough to t a broad range of businesses, yet specific enough to pinpoint both areas of excellence and areas in need of change. Performing a Lean Audit helps you challenge the status quo and improve operational tness to better compete in a rapidly evolving world."
