Recognizing that many companies are content to continue working as they always have and not take the Lean "plunge", a "coupon" is provided here for consideration. Its design and layout can be adapted to a specific firm. It is meant to be shared with clients and used with proposals and other marketing efforts to highlight the firm's willingness to go the extra mile and do what is not required or really even needed. Recent projects should be reviewed beforehand to determine the correct percentage of inefficiency to offer. The results may be surprising.
Most in firm leadership today are well aware of continued fee pressures and the complexities of delivering work. It is surprising then that so little attention is given to shaping how we work so as to not waste our time, effort and hard earned money.
Enjoy the coupon! You may know of a firm that could benefit from using it!
