An Easy-to-Understand Lean Glossary

The web is overflowing with confusing Lean jargon creating unnecessary barriers to simple process improvement. We don’t like it either! That’s why we created this glossary to provide you with definitions of common terms using straight-forward language. What does 5S stand for? What is “Muda?” What are the 8 Wastes? Definitions along with associated infographics and templates are all located in one easy-access glossary. Enjoy!
