It may go without saying that there are some "tools" that are helpful to have on hand when you start a lean implementation. Greg Hernandez of R.W. Lyall has an article listing five at the American Machinist's website. Click the link below for more...

The lean journey, especially initial implementation, is overwhelming. But remember, with commitment, a positive outlook and the right lean tools at your disposal, you’ll be amazed how simple and rewarding the journey is.

There is a saying I heard once... "If you want to do more... do less." I think the essence of the sentiment is "focus"; and in so doing, eliminating the waste that comes with trying to do too much. IndustryWeek posted an article about "how Brian Emerick and Micropulse shed customers in an effort to focus on one industry and become an expert — and an incubator." Forward through the link below to read the full article.
