Lean as an improvement method that focuses on the reduction of Non-value adds and waste in a business process. Lean practitioners are of the view that if a process hasn't been reviewed for Non-value adds typically the process would constitute about 95% of non-value-adding activities. To be able to survive and be able to improve on profits, organizations, will have to look keenly at their business process and work at the reduction and elimination of non-value-adding activities, waste & unreasonableness in the processes, and variation.
If the organizations do not look at non-value adds and waste, unreasonableness in their business process, etc you may soon run out of business itself. NVAs create waiting, increase Turn around Time of completion of things, and reduce customer experience all of which will increase your cost of doing business and may soon drive you out of business.
