What is

Lean Centric Design?

Lean Centric Design is an absolute necessity for sustainable market-value generating transformation in a disruptive ditigital environment.

LCD is the strategic framework that supports next generation business productivity enablers, such as; Lean Six Sigma 2.0 and all of its types and derivatives.

LCD starts by interrogating an organisations strategic aims and then provide powerful command and control enablers to convert that unique strategy into sustainable operational capability. There is no other way! 

Business Productivity Model

Not a smorgasbord


Driving Value

To sustain long term market-value creation in an evermore digitised environment an organisational paradigm shift may be needed to sustain a transformation culture. LEAN CENTRIC DESIGN provides a structured approach to strategic value realisation by tiering strategy into areas of operational activity. By doing this, transformation benefits are linked to the strategic value proposition.


Benefits Criteria

Compliance disciplines promote fact-based decision making with criteria based algorithms to analytically test priority focus at all levels of organisation. Establishing qualitative assessment to any productivity improvement initiatives will focus resources on highest priority opportunities


Simply Effective

More than a century of global experience in advancing  productivity with emerging technologies has provided a tried and tested wealth of tools and techniques that are as valid today as they ever were. Lean Centric Design ensures magnificaton of these tools and techniques by embedding them into a structured framework.


Cultural Bias

An intelligent strategic architecture that values the absolute requirement for a 'tribal' engagement contribution at all levels of organisation. The realisaton that sustainment in a digitally disruptive environment requires holistic involvement of all.

Three Core Components

Lean Centric Design has three significant components
