A business growth strategy Stampa E-mail


A man going on a journey, (.) called his servants and entrusted his property to them.
To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability.
Then he went on his journey.
The man who had received the five talents went at once and put his money to work and gained five more.
So also, the one with the two talents gained two more.
But the man who had received the one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master's money.

Matthew 25:14-30 (New International Version)

Calculating the Financial Benefits of Lean Stampa E-mail
Calculating the Financial Benefits of Lean using Lean Accounting
by Nick Katko BMA Inc.
Well run businesses make business decisions that make financial sense. Executives want to know the financial impact of business decisions on revenue, costs, profits and stock price.
For companies considering the adoption of a lean business strategy, the role of the finance team is the same.
However, the financial analysis requires financial people to understand the impact a lean strategy will have on the company’s production capacity and be able to produce a inancial analysis that does not rely on traditional standard costing analysis.
A lean business strategy is a business growth strategy. How this strategy works can be best summarized as follows: lean practices, tools & methods are adapted to create a culture of continuous improvement, which reduces and eliminates wasteful activities,creating available productive capacity.
Lean companies make money by increasing sales to use that productive capacity and developing other sound business practices to reallocate and eliminate unused resources.
Calculating the financial benefits of lean is an initial part of a lean business strategy that forces company management to begin addressing the success of a lean implementation before the success occurs.

The origins of Lean thinking Stampa E-mail
Something brand new for the friends of the Lean Thinker’s Club and for all enthusiasts of Japanese culture who are interested in learning more about the many bonds that exist between tradition of that county and the underlying principles of lean production. A prestigious collaboration has recently started with Rosario Manisera, a renowned expert of Japanese topics, publicist, interpreter and company trainer who for years has been involved in activities of cultural divulgation and intermediation, also through the Japan-Italy Association which he founded.
