Group Overview

Lean, and other effective continuous improvement philosophies, focus on creating a system through which waste and problems are systematically identified and resolved. The best organizations  do this with copious engagement by the whole workforce.

While the emphasis should always be on the system, there are many standard Lean tools that are extremely useful in developing a continuous improvement culture. The most commonly used and straightforward of these tools are included in this module group.

Many of these tools also serve as building blocks for more sophisticated Lean tools. Focus on putting these tools in place before attempting to use the tools in the Advanced Lean Tools Module Group.
