LEAN Consulting and Value Stream Mapping

Many companies and organizations are continuing to look for ways to reduce their internal cost of operations and overhead. Implementing LEAN principles has become a very important concept and one that may help improve overall efficiency of operations, directly impacting bottom line results.

The technical definition of LEAN manufacturing is “a systematic approach to identifying and eliminating waste (non-value-added activities) through continuous improvement by flowing the product at the pull of the customer in pursuit of perfection.”

Now more than ever, the demands of modern business require an organization to be customer-focused while always ensuring that management controls and due diligence requirements are constantly monitored and enhanced. As companies grow and economic conditions change, it becomes more difficult to have an in-house department with all the skills needed to address all the internal audit needs of your organization.

Internal Audit Outsourcing and Co-sourcing gives a company the opportunity to bring in an auditor with specialized skills to help add value to the organization. Outsourced and co-sourced internal audit can transfer knowledge to the department and recommend efficiency improvements. Your company can also benefit from the sharing of resources and tools. Whether you are looking for a new viewpoint or the ability to cover unexpected staffing needs outsourcing or co-sourcing might be the solution for you.
