Lean Principles

Lean principles help with waste reduction, achieving the goal with minimal resources thus resulting in efficiency. The 5 core Lean principles are: 

  • define your goal 

  • list all the actions or steps required to reach your goal

  • create an action plan, filtering actions or steps that don't add value (eliminate waste)

  • associate the resources required to respective actions or steps

  • Look at the action plan and identify areas of improvement and enhance the plan

Goal Management - KPI Dashboard

While working towards a goal, often times we lose track as we don't remind ourselves enough on a daily basis. KPI’s are metrics that help you achieve your goal, through Visual dashboards.
 
Metrics can be derived by identifying the key actions or steps that would help you achieve your goal (refer to Lean principles section above, to understand how to identify actions or steps towards your goal).
 
Here is a Sample KPI Dashboard

Exercise: Is there a goal you are currently working on? Then try defining the KPI’s that help you reach your goal, using the sample dashboard
