What is 'lean'?


Lean is the most widespread management philosophy of our time and is currently present in every industry. Yet, the concept is still vaguely defined and widely misunderstood. 'What is Lean?' is an interactive training program consisting of 25 modules that equip participants with a solid understanding of both what Lean is - and what Lean is not. By using clear, concise language and insightful examples to clarify the essence of Lean, this course will increase your understanding of the fundamentals and what Lean is about.

The program is based on the book ‘This is Lean – Resolving the efficiency paradox’, which was launched in 2011. The book has sold over 300,000 copies and been translated into 18 languages, making it one of the bestselling Lean books of all time. And yes, you've understood it right. Niklas Modig, who is leading this program, is one of the authors to the book. And our CEO at Hups!

Resolving the "Efficiency Paradox"

The program both introduces and resolves the idea of the efficiency paradox, which claims that organisations misunderstand what true efficiency is.

When organisations focus too much on resource efficiency, known as the traditional and most common form of efficiency, this tends to lead – paradoxically – to an increase in the amount of work that needs to be done. In this way, the more organisations try to be efficient by being busy, the more inefficient they become as a result.
