The LEAN loop

So in the previous post I introduced a LEAN improvement cycle (in some places called the improvement “kata”). It goes something like this:

  • Identifying a vision
  • Determining where we are now
  • Establishing where we want to be next
  • Recognising obstacles between now and next
  • Problem solving to overcome the obstacles

So lets look at how this might work. Let us use a health example, lets say you have a vision of running a marathon.
