Benefit realisation from Lean: a case study approach to seizing the benefits
2010 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

Businesses adopt lean to maximise its business: resulting in competitive and financial benefits. The goal is to deliver customer value without waste. This will not be achieved unless the management understand that lean benefits do not just happen. The purpose of the thesis is to improve the management’s ability to seize the financial and competitive benefits of lean by examining the pharmaceutical company H. Lundbeck A/S supply operations and engineering function. The case study approach focuses on improving the management’s ability to find potential lean improvements: and to ensure that entire potential of the improvements has been harvested. The thesis is based on a comprehensive literature review, e-mail discussions with the subject experts Brian Maskell and profes-sor Lawrence Grasso and 13 semi-structured interviews with respondents working on different levels within the organisation. The result from the case study shows that it is the specific organisations needs that determine how the management’s ability to seize the financial and competitive benefits of lean should be improved. The management’s ability to find potential lean improvements can be improved by: implementing value stream management, produce value stream costs reports and setting up ground data guidelines. The improvements would also help the management to ensure that the entire potential of the lean improvement has been harvested. Additionally a clear structured tracking database, reviews of each lean initiative and aggregated lean effect on the value stream performance would help the management to ensure that the entire potential of the lean improvement has been harvested.
