Lean Organization Design
September 10 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
After entrepreneurs get their first customers, their focus shifts from designing products and services to designing an organisation that is capable acquiring new customers at a constant and predictable rate and producing the product at a cost effective rate. Building a company requires substantial changes in the behaviour of the entrepreneurial team and the change of focus from innovation to optimization. The best framework to use to help with this daunting task in Lean.
Lean organizations aim to refine processes, reduce waste and deliver value to customers. Successful implementation of a lean organizational structure in your own business also includes attention to actionable metrics, learning and customer feedback.
A lean organization is committed to its customers and works to minimize waste by focusing all of its resources on producing the best possible value for customers. Investments are carefully considered and only made when it is clear that a long-term financial advantage exists in doing so. Fluff is cut away until all that is left are departments and employees who directly affect the finished product. Any organization can be made lean as long as the organization’s mission remains in clear focus.
A lean organizational structure is a structure that is designed to create more customer value using fewer resources than a traditional organizational structure. The goal for all members of an organization that utilizes a lean structure is to constantly find ways to improve the processes of the organization and to make the organization more efficient.
