Principles of Lean

The Principles of Lean are a set of guiding principles for how to develop and deliver products, services, and processes. But they are also about how to design, manage and run all types of organisations from SME’s through to Global Organisations. They are core principles that should also influence our decision making on a daily basis.

Principles of Lean

The Principles of Lean can be broken down into 2 main themes. Firstly, we have the 5 Principles of Lean which focus on value, value stream, flow, pull and perfection, and secondly, we have the 14 Lean Management Principles. The first teaches us how to solve and improve business performance, the second gives us core principles that we must use to support our thinking and our decision making.
