There have been many different definitions of lean over the years. The best one we have found is:

  1. Respect for people and resources

  2. Stable environments

  3. Continuous improvement

Everything starts with respect, and we must take care of our people first. Only on that foundation can we get buy-in to run operationally remarkable projects in a stable environment. And only in a stable environment with standards can anything be improved. It is a sequence in the order of priority. We have created the graphic below to help you along your lean journey to eliminating waste and variation.
