In today’s fast-paced rapidly changing business environment – the new reality – you must involve all your employees in the success of your Company.   Every employee must be aware of the processes they use to execute their duties and continually be searching for ways to do their job better—error free.

You must create a very efficient money-making Lean organization to survive and compete    with the best of companies in the new business reality.  This means becoming a World Class Organization optimizing all the productive resources at your disposal.  To be World Class companies must optimize all the productive resources at their disposal:

  • talent – employees
  • equipment – including their business systems employed properly
  • materials that meet or exceed their customers’ requirements 

The Strategic Planning Process and Lean business drivers described in this book are tools that virtually any company – big or small – can afford to use to create a World Class Company able to compete in today’s new business reality.  A return on your investment should come immediately after you put the tools to work in your business.

The Lean Drivers, best applied with a robust Strategic Planning Process, are Mistake Proofing; Self-Directed Cross Functional Teams; The Workout Process; Flexibility; Succession Planning and Expense Control.  Inherent in all of these tools are the elements of employee motivation and empowerment.  Any one of these tools can be used separately but taken together they will enable you to build a very Lean money-making business.
