Methodology

Lean Digital is a synergy of Lean philosophy and a modern production trend. Such combination allows to map company’s processes and improve their efficiency from the digitalisation perspective. Through the thorough Lean analysis of the processes the organization is moving towards setting the goal of digitalisation: what, how and what for to digitalise.

Processes modelling – transparency and logic

Processes modelling is a way to build a live business model of the company that is created with the help of the employees and based on their knowledge. An employee directly involved in the process describes his actions. Based on that description the visual work flow is created, which contains:

  • the output of the process (yes, you should start from the end)
  • the input of the process
  • actions that enable the employee to move from the input to the output
  • the responsibilities and key persons connected to the action
  • all the details that a description of the work process should carry: the location of the documents, necessary materials, metrics, goals etc

Processes Lean analysis – spring cleaning for the processes

Waste from the Lean perspective is detected during the modelling and belongs somewhere else – not to your process. Lean analysis leads to an important transition towards the conscious implementation of potential improvements. Even if you decide not to go on with digitalisation, you get a process map that is alive due to the employee involvement and reflects current situation better than ever before.

Processes digital analysis

Digitalisation as transformation starts here. Lean analysis enables to easily discover waste in the processes, however does this process needs to be digitalised at all? With a digital analysis you get clarity in the following:

  • WHAT needs to be digitalised
  • WHY to digitalise
  • HOW process digitalisation adds value for a customer.
