Lean Management Self-Assessment Tool

EDDS Consulting advocates excellence and encourage individuals and companies to strive for excellence. We strive to achieve this through personal and organizational capacity building by providing basic, intermediate and advanced level management training and international certifications. We help organizations to start and sustain this journey of excellence through consulting as well. Organizations excel through the excellent group of people that constitute an organization. So, developing people is paramount.

For those who are taking lean transformation seriously and are continuously improving their skills in this area, this tool for self-assessment will provide practical insights into their work environment in the light of Lean Management Principles.

Companies can use this assessment tool to gauge their level of progress in embracing the lean management practices.

This tool uses 14 lean practices to assess the lean implementation status. While scoring your facility against these 14 lean practices you will be able to realize the improvement potential that may be present in one or more functions of your business.

Be honest in your scoring! And, of course, must not be done on your office desk. Go to the 'Gemba' to see visible evidence against each principle.

This assessment should be done by a team of representatives from every section or department of an organization. By doing that, you will be able to trigger an internal awareness and debate about the current status of organization's alignment with the lean principles.

Should you feel a need, we can assist in arranging a formal assessment workshop for your staff which will:

  • serve as an orientation to the lean concepts
  • will generate realization of Lean Implementation's benefit potential and
  • provide the motivation and drive to initiate practical improvement projects.

Please note, this assessment assumes intermediate to advanced level understanding of Lean Principles. Nevertheless, learners with foundation level understanding can also pick new terms and concepts to further enhance their learning.
