Are Lean and Finish Strong® Contradictory?

Can ERP Systems
and Lean Co Exist

Lean focuses on eliminating waste, continuous improvement, and the endless pursuit of perfection.

Finish Strong® is about completed work.

While seemingly contradictory, they are not.

Continuous improvement requires a never-ending series of completed and sustained improvements, which become the foundation for more.

Most improvement efforts fail; recommended changes slide back to the old way. Finish Strong® changes that.

Finish Strong® ensures completed work, reinforcing improvements.
Finish Strong® preserves the gains as advances continue.
Finish Strong® drives repeat problems from your business.

Shigeo Shingo and Taiichi Ohno wouldn’t deny the value of those.

Nor should you.
