What is the difference between ‘Rapid Lean’ and conventional Kaizen Lean?
Rapid Lean requires the Lean Black Belt consultant to analyze the company’s processes including time studies of each process step, focused on identifying and eliminating waste, while balancing the workload for each employee based on daily customer demand.
Senior management prefers Rapid Lean because it quickly improves the productivity of each production line or front office process, which typically reduces the labor cost >50% increasing net profit by 134%. Depending on the process complexity and necessity of moving equipment and work stations or adding automation; this can require between 3-8 weeks for each process. Note: You the client are in total control, i.e. no changes will be made without your approval and leadership in implementing the change.
After Rapid Lean, empower the employees with Kaizen Lean teaching them how to identify the 9 kinds of waste and alternative tools to eliminate waste and improve productivity, which typically reduces labor cost an additional 11% increasing net profit to 145%. Kaizen is the Lean legacy for continuous ongoing additional savings and profit that the employees implement and earn recognition and reward.
