Lean Problem Solving is a way of approaching organizational problems that is characterized by continuous improvement and the use of proven, problem-solving methodologies.The goals of Lean Problem Solving include:Identifying and solving problems in less time and achievement of measurable resultsInvolving everyone in the problem solving processUsing data and process flow to focus on a problemDeveloping practical and detailed solutionsAs per Lean Enterprise Institute there are Four Types of ProblemsType 1: Troubleshooting: reactive problem-solving that hinges upon rapidly returning abnormal conditions to known standards. It provides some immediate relief but does not address the root cause.Type 2: Gap from Standard: structured problem-solving that focuses on defining the problem, setting goals, analyzing the root cause, and establishing countermeasures, checks, standards, and follow-up activities. The aim is to prevent the problem from recurring by eliminating its underlying causes.Type 3: Target Condition: continuous improvement (kaizen) that goes beyond existing standards of performance. It may utilize existing methods in new, creative ways to deliver superior value or performance toward a new target state of improvement.Type 4: Open-ended: innovative problem-solving based on creativity, synthesis, and recognition of opportunity. It establishes new norms that often entail unexpected products, processes, systems, or value for the customer well beyond current levels.By helping everyone in the organization to understand the importance of taking ownership of seeing and solving all types of problems, lean thinking & practice:Engenders a sense of empowerment and autonomy in all workers, which in turn promotes engagement in and ownership of the work processEnables organizations to overcome obstacles at their source, so they do not become more significant problems upstreamUltimately, building a problem-solving culture creates a competitive advantage that is difficult for competitors to match.
