Lean Management is a philosophy representing change in the sense of "creating value without waste" based on the process principles of tact, flow, pull and perfection. The consistent involvement of all employees in the active design of their working environment is a crucial element.
Furthermore, Lean Management includes a bundle of principles and methods to plan, design and control the entire value chain.
A company acting according to these principles focuses on the essentials, the internal and external customer requirements, and uses less of everything - less time and fewer resources.
Lean Management capitalises on using the methods, the physical skills and the know-how of all employees, their participation and their development and on the change process led by the management.
