- Lean project management is the application of lean manufacturing principles to the practice of project management.
- Companies work on various projects that include developing products, services, and/or processes. Lean Project Management uses data-driven methods to manage projects by focusing on continuously improving the process. This approach stems from lean management that emphasises: Quality.
- Lean project management differs from traditional project management not only in the goals it pursues, but also in the structure of its phases, the relationship between phases and the participants in each phase.
- Working lean means eliminating waste. Being agile is to be adaptive, resilient, flexible and appropriate to the situation. Combining them we find the “just right” level of formality in our projects so there is no excess and no insufficiency. Like the martial artist, the project team wastes no energy to get the job done.
- Managing the continuous improvement and reduce the wastage of resources
- An open mind and a willingness to learn.
- No prep work or previous knowledge required.

Lean management is an approach to running an organization that encourages continuous improvement, a long-term process where small changes are implemented systematically. This training will provide you with the concepts of Lean management and how you can use them in your organization. Lean manufacturing is a business philosophy that has proven highly successful since it can reduce costs, eliminate waste, increase productivity, maintain high levels of quality and thus make a significant increase in your profit.
The Kanban methodology in Agile involves a set of principles that can be applied to processes to improve their flow and reduce waste. Both managers and team members alike can benefit from the Kanban-style of project management. Learn everything you need to know to implement Kanban from authors with years of experience working within this methodology.
The Lean approach starts at the bottom of an organization and proceeds up, unlike Six Sigma which is a top-down management philosophy, in which the management imposes changes in the work process. In a Lean system, each individual worker within a work cell tries to improve his or her performance. The role of the management is to go on the factory floor and check what is happening and in accordance with providing additional training, promotion, and learning.
Improved Quality and Fewer Defects
A lot of the activity in a lean environment is focused on quality improvement. Without waste and its additional costs such as transport or inventory, the value of the products gets increased the quality also enhances. In a top-quality production, there are fewer defects and if they occur they are easily eliminated.
Waste is a significant product within any process. The Lean Approach is focused on improving process speed and quality through the reduction of process waste. Waste consumes energy, money, and is of no value to the customer.
The money saved on product storage and inventory management adds additional cash flow to the company. However, fewer employees mean additional training for workers but with clear work instructions and standardized work, the job is easily and more eagerly performed. Managing satisfied workers is easily conducted and makes any business prosper in the long run+
Kanban is flexible There are no prescribed phase durations, and priorities are constantly reassessed based on the most recent information. Another advantage of using Kanban is the focus on continuous delivery.

Lean Project Management, is the application of lean manufacturing principle to practice the project management. The goal of project management is to maximise the value while minimising waste. Lean manufacturing uses less of everything compared with mass production - half the human effort in the factory, half the manufacturing floor space, half the investment in tools, half the engineering hours to develop a new product in half the time."Lean" is a systematic method for the elimination of waste ("Muda") within a manufacturing system. Lean also takes into account waste created through overburden ("Muri") and waste created through unevenness in work loads ("Mura"). Working from the perspective of the client who consumes a product or service, "value" is any action or process that a customer would be willing to pay for.
Lean Thinking lays out the five Lean manufacturing principles; value, value streams, flow, pull, and perfection.
The Kanban Method is a means to design, manage, and improve flow systems for knowledge work. The method also allows organizations to start with their existing workflow and drive evolutionary change.
