A PASSION FOR PEOPLE, PROCESSES AND SYSTEMS
We believe that true change is about empowering your talent to step up and work towards a shared goal.
The roots of Lean are best expressed in the first two principles:
Flow teaches us to think of the process as a whole and center everything around your customer value.
Signal shows us how we are part of the whole, how we contribute, how we can influence our steps in the process and ensure quality.
Once you have streamlined your processes, your organization can follow suit:
Control helps us think about the level of self-organization that will naturally occur, guided by Lean principles. It shows us how you measure the different departments in your organization.
And when the transformation to self-organization, alignment and more empowerment is underway, do you still need the same complexity in your IT systems and processes?
Simplify allows us to reflect the trust we can now have in our people and processes. How do you forecast, plan, predict? Where can you rely on shorter reaction times rather than complex algorithms? Where can you reduce complexity and cost?
Lean Thinking really boils down to reducing a challenge to its simplest components and applying common sense. Our set of principles helps us to break down our sometimes very complex processes by focusing on some simple aspects. In the end, there is no real right or wrong way. It is about constantly challenging yourself and the status quo and ask: "where can we make things even better!"
