    Lean Construction is a way to do more and more with less and less; less effort, less equipment, less time and less space whilst providing customers with exactly what they want. A Lean system, process, and organisation is one that is waste free. Lean is not about size or number of people employed. A reduction in employees may cut costs, and eliminate the waste of those employees, but does not decrease the proportion of waste to value adding within the organisation or process.

    Let me suggest a concept called: 5S. 5S is an organizational tool born out of the Toyota production system called Lean. The basic idea behind 5S office management is that a messy office is full of waste. Not only the waste you can see, i.e. the mess; but the time wasted in looking for the right file, your phone, eye glasses. You get the idea.

    When Ftse 100 Ceo's were polled and asked the question, "Are your sales people calling on the right customers, at the right time, with the right offer?" 99.3% responded, "I don't know." Which shouldn't surprise. Sales and Marketing are still the last bastions of protected turf, limited management scrutiny and lack of accountability.

    It’s time once again to make much of a simple concept; that two groups with different names, languages and cultures might put aside their old habits, pettiness, and grudges, recognize the overwhelming alignment of their most critical self-interests, and join their complementary strengths to achieve unprecedented peace, harmony, and productivity. That’s the concept behind total productive maintenance (TPM).

    Many smart entrepreneurs prefer to buy an existing business instead of beginning a new one. Buying a business that is already operational will bring many benefits, including an already established product or service, well-trained staff who know the business, and enough success to have kept the company afloat for a period of time. Not having any money to purchase the business will not necessarily keep you from buying it.

    There are some people who think there is no place for 5s Lean at home, just like those who say you can't bake without ovens! The 5S process of Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, and Sustain is a lean manufacturing process in use by the Toyota Production System for decades. The premise of 5S is to help organize and improve the conditions of a workplace, but this process can be used for your home as well. These steps can help you get your home organized now, and keep it that way.
