Tips to apply Lean to your business
- The first thing to keep in mind is to organize your business before applying the method to know what resources you have and which ones you can use to be efficient. In addition, it’s important to engage all your project members and partners so they’re alerted and able to contribute with ideas.
- In the execution part, it is important to opt for the simple. Focus on creating, measuring and learning. Start by taking small steps and after viewing the results, customer behaviour and validating, learn and execute the final result. At this point the speed of testing the possible business proposal is essential to optimize time.
- Be creative. One of the strengths of Lean methodology is the possibility to adapt and improve your product as you test to make it perfect and original.
And above all… don’t miss the point! Set clear and well-defined goals so you don’t stray and have a clear path.
