Lean administration means to transfer the lean concept, which has originally been developed in production, to another area which does not have a physical flow of material and visible stocks evaluated in a company’s balance sheet. Therefore, the solution cannot be a simple transfer or equation of terms. The baseline is the focus on value adding and the prevention of all activities which do not add any value but will affect the cost side of the profit and loss statement and therefore lead to competitive disadvantages.
Successful companies, which have participated in the ‘Automotive Lean Production’ – Award & Study initiative, are expanding the lean philosophy into administrative areas after they have implemented lean principles to a large extent in production. Here you can find good examples in your company that show that introducing lean is worth doing. This will help convince your employees to implement lean in administrative areas.
