Lean Equations

  1. 1. Lean Equations By Tom Curtis
  2. 2. Created by Tom Curtis 2010 Blog: www.onimproving.blogspot.com Other presentations on www.slideshare.net Under Onimproving Email: ideamerchants@gmail.com
  3. 3. Introduction I try to understand Lean by experiencing and seeing it in as many forms and situations as I can. This is an another attempt to do that. What follows is a series of equations. Each equation addresses a lean concept or tool. Review them and see if they help you better see Lean, then create your own. Enjoy! --Tom Curtis, 2010
