We can provide you with volumes of impressive numbers that meet or exceed Lean benchmarks for labor productivity, work-in-process inventory, production throughput and many other metrics. And we are happy to do so. But, we prefer to talk with you about results that are relevant to your business situation and not just relative to another company’s position. The case studies we have provided here are intended to help clients stretch their imaginations and envision a more progressive Lean implementation. Just as Lean Horizons Consulting was one of the first to extend Lean principles to accounting disciplines, we are leading the deployment of Lean within organizations’ service operations and, thus, enabling the benefits that come from a comprehensive, enterprise-wide Lean Business System.
