ASSESSMENTS

The Lean Transformation Model is a framework developed by the Lean Analytics Association which proposes 4 building blocks aiming to serve as a guide for organizations to develop their own roadmap to start or continue their lean journey towards achieving their envisioned True North.

As there is no unique secret formula that fits all organizations, the assessment consolidates different questions under the four building blocks and 12 enablers, to enable the judges to identify the very best cases that will constitute the finalists.

The selected cases will be documented and will be the ones to be audited in detail by the global experts that will be part of the panel.
