Lean Metrics and Scoreboarding

Published on 21 January 2020

Lean Metrics are a standard set of measures that monitor the performance of processes through visual management techniques and engage employees in the process. The targets are developed specifically for each company. Although measuring different specific measures, they always focus on Lean objectives – Quality, Cost (Productivity), Delivery (People and Process performance) Safety & Culture.

A standard set of measures helps your teams to strive for targets and smart goals, boosts output and product / service quality and allows the management team to easily manage processes at a glance. Once developed, Lean Metrics can be implemented company-wide using a standardised approach and engages employees to understand and work towards company targets.

Lean Metrics and Scoreboarding provide:

  • Team understanding of critical success measures in the business
  • Standard KPI’s organization-wide
  • Ability to benchmark performance between business units and organisations
  • Real time information that informs quality improvement initiatives
  • Employee Engagement – all employees work towards the ‘Big Picture’

The process steps to developing Lean Metrics:
