Lean HC in 27 Words

Posted on July 20, 2012


I have covered the basics of lean design in previous posts—especially how design-build best embodies lean priciples

However, I was inspired by a Becker’s and Advisory Board posting and applied lean to a description of lean to best communicate the fundamentals of lean design with the least amount of verbiage.  It is not quite tweet-worthy, but enjoy:

  1. Understand:  Value = best outcome from least work.
  2. Identify ideal number of process steps.
  3. Implement just-in-time approach:  shift resources at transitions (increased / decreased need).
  4. Cut waste.
