When first implementing Lean it really helps to identify “simple” ways to reduce wastes. One idea is to reduce the amount of paper used in an organization as this may reduce the number of copiers, reduce the supplies and save time spent making those copies. We have done this at our work where they put posters up showing the reductions over a three month period. It was surprising at the savings achieved and how quickly the organization adapted to the new process. Once the organization sees the savings, they are more likely to accept the more difficult or longer projects. What do you think of this approach?
