‘Lean Management’ Learning Opportunity ApproachingSource: PLANET

PLANET’s annual Crystal Ball Report (#26) explains the concept of lean management: “The foundation for lean management’s success is the relentless elimination of any and all of the seven distinct types of waste that prevent companies from providing optimum value to their customers. The seven types of waste are inventory, transportation, processing, waiting, motion, overproduction and defect.” Each of these types is further explained in the Crystal Ball Report with specific examples.

The Crystal Ball Report is an annual publication that focuses on important and timely issues that face green industry business owners and their employees today. PLANET represents approximately 4,400 green industry service provider companies and suppliers nationwide.
