"Lean Counting" slides by Jim Womack
Author: N/A
Media Format: Articles
Publish Date: 9/21/2011

Lean Enterprise Institute Founder Jim Womack, who led the MIT research team that coined the term “lean production,” shares his slides from his "Lean Counting" keynote at the Lean Accounting Summit conference, Sept. 14-16, 2011.

For a deeper dive:
The Lean Accounting Workshop gives you the logic, key principles, and a proven methodology to create a complete lean accounting system that accurately reflects the benefits of the lean transformation. This workshop is not an academic exercise. It's based on the successful lean accounting transformation performed by The Wiremold Company and it is taught by Orest Fiume, Wiremold's vice president of finance, during the transformation.
