Digital Lean Management Consultancy
Digital Lean Management is a business management methodology which pursuits the maximum efficiency by erasing all the elements that increase the costs or do not add value to the product or service. Some examples are wastes, overproduction, anomalies and defective pieces.
This concept is based in Lean Manufacturing, a production system deployed by Toyota where every overcost is erased without the need of any investment in machinery or technology.
The main goal of Digital Lean Management is to produce more with less. This is achieved by optimizing all the resources that the company has. Digital Lean Management is applied to all the product life-cycle: material purchases, production, storage, delivery, sales... every process can be optimized.
Digital Lean Management benefits

Related to productivity, we find storage cost reduction since the company will only have the products that will be sold.
This also requires a greater auto-control of the inputs that the company uses in production and the products that they make, thus the quality will increase. Thanks to more staff training about quality standards they will be able to do this task and feel more involved at work.

Key Performance Indicator must serve to involve and motivate beside of measuring the performance of the company.
