A better dialogue and relation with consumers allows organizations to increase customer loyalty and customer satisfaction. When successfully implementing lean, organizations are able to add more value to their goods and services while simultaneously cutting resources of waste and raising organizational agility.
  2. STRATEGIC VALUE: organization can benefit from lean, as Lean organizations focus on continuous improvement in their process performance which brings them great value in terms of strategy. For example, focusing on continuously process performance improvement will lead to increased quality, efficiency of development and effectiveness.
  3. FINANCIAL VALUE: the third category refers to the financial advantages that Lean can offer.
