Stay Lean Throughout the Upturn

Fortune Magazine features an article from earlier this week about the importance of staying lean and mean even after the recession.  It is important for businesses to continue to evaluate how their business processes are performed and understand where it is possible to further streamline how business is done.  During the recovery, companies should continue to fiercely manage their capital and rigorously evaluate staff to ensure an A-list roster for the next downturn. While many managers think that streamlining processes is resource-intensive, that is not the case unless that process is done poorly. When done right, Lean can lead to significant financial and productivity gains!Need help in understanding where processes can be streamlined?
