Lean Management is a management strategy that is seeking reduction. Lean Management uses methods, procedures and ways of thinking to optimize processes. It encourages a process oriented business management, where all processes and workflows are exactly defined and coordinated to achieve the best possible efficiency.
Lean Management was developed on the basis of Lean Production.
The goals are:
Lean Management is not just an organizing principle for management and production, but for human resources as well. Staff members are integrated in the process optimisation. This helps to reach their full potential, and also motivates the staff members to engage in finding ideas for further improvements.
Lean Management affects logistics as well. Just-in-Time production is one tool to implement Lean Management. Digitalization, which is especially deep reaching in logistics, helps to implement Lean Management and to tighten the processes in logistics.
