What is Lean Thinking?


Lean thinking is a business operating system that maximizes customer value while minimizing waste. Lean thinking defines anything that does not add value for the customer as waste. The ultimate goal is to provide perfect value to the customer through a perfect value creation process that has zero waste. Lean thinking seeks this goal through waste elimination along entire value streams instead of just isolated points. The creation of new processes that require less human effort, less space, less capital, and less time. Lean thinking will improve the performance of any business in any industry.

Your Lean Journey Starts Here.




“Our entire customer service team, plus other key members, attended the Lean 101 class and held a value-stream mapping event with Industrial Solutions – ISI at our office to identify key processes in our Customer Service group that required improvement. As a result, our service has improved, our customers are happier, and our employees feel more empowered to identify and solve problems. A true win -win!”

Tulsa Consulting Lean Thinking

Theory is good, but participants must be able to apply the principles.  Therefore, we conduct all training at a host client where participants experience real-life scenarios on the shop floor of a company that is engaged in a Lean initiative.


Our consultants are experts on a broad array of subjects, and can facilitate events on any of them, leading the process owners to achieve great gains.  The consulting philosophy at ISI derives from the fact that our consultants have spent more years actually working in industry rather than consulting.


“Our employee engagement is the best it’s ever been. Employees are gaining a level of satisfaction that makes them want to retire from the company although we are going through a down cycle. It’s not easy.  I would recommend ISI to any company that wants to have lean thinkers.

We would never be where we are today without ISI.”
