Regardless of the industry, there are common challenges faced by all. These challenges centre around managing costs, meeting delivery lead times, ensuring quality is built into processes, ensuring that the workplace is safe, and finally (and at times most importantly) engaging with the people and culture of your team.
With this thought in mind, Lean has developed its industry specific frameworks over time, as it has the flexibility of being adaptable to suit every industry type. Most people have heard of terms such as ‘Lean Manufacturing’, Lean Logistics or Lean Healthcare. These terms are simply short for saying ‘Lean for a particular industry’.
Some common industries that we have successfully used Lean for are mentioned below, along with many more that aren’t mentioned:
- Logistics and Supply Chain Management
- Food Processing
- Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities
- Local, State & Federal Government Departments
- Banks and Other Financial Institutions
- Mining Companies
- Information Technology Departments
- Office and Services
- And more
