Lean Enterprise Assessment
The Lean Enterprise Assessment evaluates 40 criteria critical to a lean
enterprise. The critera divided into four groups of ten with each group
corresponding to categories of Leadership, People, Infrastructure, and Lean
Concepts. You can see the specific criteria below.
The Assessment consists of a questionnaire and an Excel-based data
collection, analysis, summary, and reporting tool. The questionnaire is
provided in both Microsoft Word and Adobe PDF formats, and can therefore if
desired it can be customized for the specific circumstances of an
|The Assessment is part of the Lean Enterprise Series of PowerPoint
training presentations, but can also be purchased separately. All forms
of payment (including PO's and wire transfers) are accepted, and you

|The Assessment begins with 40
questions. Each question has five levels, each of which describes the
environment at that level. This makes the rating for that question
easier to determine and more consistent across multiple respondents. In
addition, it is a learning tool as the respondent can read about the
environment at a world class level.
|There can be any number of
respondents, however for your convenience we have included an
Excel-based data collection, analysis, and summary workbook that allows
for up to eight "leaders" and eight "associates."
|As data from various
respondents are entered, the workbook automatically calculates the
overall average, the average of the "leader" group, and the average of
the "associates" group. The average is calculated for each individual
question, each category, and overall. In addition a standard deviation
is calculated for each question, group, and overall. This allows you to
analyze how associates may view the status of a certain criteria
differently than the leaders, and how much disparity there is between
perceptions of different lean enterprise attributes.
|A summary sheet clearly and
concisely shows the average for each question, category, and overall.
|The summary data is then
plotted on a radar chart to visually show strengths and weaknesses.
