Hundreds of businesses and organizations each year choose to implement a Lean Management system to help:

  • Improve productivity and efficiency
  • Eliminate waste of time, materials and effort
  • Reduce costs
  • Increase profits

The Lean System is a series of methodologies, techniques and procedures that not only time tested by nearly half a century in the field, but are continually updated to face the latest challenges of the economic landscape. But Lean is also so much more:

Lean Philosophy:

Lean is not just a tool kit for fixing your organizational and production problems. It is an ongoing commitment to improving the effectiveness of every aspect of your organization.

It is this continual growth and evolution that separates Lean from many of the other productivity enhancement systems, a concept that is captured in the Japanese word Kaizen.

Kaizen is not a goal that you achieve but a state of mind that is shared by everyone in your organization. This state of mind must be nurtured and promoted. Each person in your organization, individually and in groups, must be given opportunities to

  • Learn new skills and concepts
  • Reinforce basic principles
  • Contribute to the overall effort to improve your systems every day
  • Learning System for Kaizen

Online Learning management system for Lean & Kaizen from Uttana are excellent ways to maintain steady levels of growth and improvement required for a well-run Kaizen system. They can also provide the skills needed to prepare your company for the next big Lean initiative.
