The purpose of Lean is to improve the overall business processes or an organization in terms of human error, effort, time and ultimately, finance. The idea is to help organizations optimize costs by creating products and services with fewer defects in comparison to a traditional business approach. Therefore, 'lean-thinking' organizations are able to provide more value to their customers without compromising on quality.
