Since 80 - 90% of the costs of a product or service are administrative costs, it stands to reason that there are plenty of opportunities to reduce waste on the other side of the wall, especially in the areas of product and process design.  Use lean tools to see the waste – go to the gemba and watch the design process, value stream map the development process and observe the vast amounts of waste and hand-offs, and deploy hoshin kanri to make a plan to reduce the waste in product and process development. 

After we see the waste in typical product and process development processes, we must drive improvements as determined in the hoshin kanri deployment process.  Learn how to deploy lean tools and lean cultural elements to make the process much more effective, to more thoroughly drive innovation, and to increase respect for the contribution of employees.
