The Lean Profit Model


Presented By:

Many organizations, whether just beginning their Lean journey or well down the path, want to understand how their investment in Lean thinking is impacting their financial outcomes. In this session, participants will learn specifically how Lean improvements impact both the income statement and balance sheet. These financial impacts will be demonstrated with examples illustrated both graphically and using an interactive spreadsheet that models the calculations. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of how to quantify and make visible the benefits of Lean thinking in their own organizations


In This Session You Will Learn…

  • How to quantify and make visible the benefits of Lean thinking
  • Several approaches to capture the value of their lean activities
  • How to apply the Lean profit model to your own organization
  • To evaluate where the benefits will and will not appear on the financial statements over time
