Components of lean

Components of Lean at Nottingham Business School

We approach Lean as an operating system that is embedded into the management structure of our business rather than applying lean in an ad hoc basis either to a centre or a cell. In this way we have a systematic approach that pervades the entire organisation and is sustainable in the long term.

The main components of our system are:

  • NBS Blue Sky - Shared Understanding of Our Vision and Mission
  • Data and Information Driven
  • Balanced Scorecard and Project A3s and Master Schedule
  • Discipline and Cadence of Reviews
  • Tools and Techniques
  • Transparency
