Lean Management - since many years a classical management approach, if an organization strives for efficiency increase and lean processes. Optimized inventories, tact times and set-up times are important for a lean enterprise but critical for the sustainable embedding of lean principles in the organization are appropriate leadership skills, empowered employees and the continuous search for improvement.  

Today one will find either a couple of initial lean initiatives, showing some limited efficiency increase only or one will find "historic" lean principles, which are not alive anymore.  

In such circumstances a "Lean-Reboost" can help to find a new lean strategy or to initiate a revitalization of the lean principles.
