Lean Accounting for the Lean Enterprise

As customers demand shorter lead times at lower prices, companies participating within a value stream are under pressure to reduce their lead times, while simultaneously reducing prices and improving economic value added (EVA) and customer service. Companies that fail to effectively implement the Lean Business System or another holistic business model risk becoming uncompetitive. Accounting methods that support Lean prove that continuous improvement projects yield the results that create a competitive advantage.
