The financial department is the backbone of every company: if it doesn’t work, nothing else works. Oftentimes, the other areas may overlook this important job and only notice the finance department when something goes wrong. But, why?
The answer is easy: your financial department is probably not delivering value for its customers—usually other internal departments. And Identify Value is the first step to implement the Lean methodology, focused on reducing wastes and improving the efficiency of any operation.
Being a Lean Finance department means having a standard for any new purchase or account you have to pay, receiving all information needed for any new request, integrating all back-office processes and automating manual and repetitive tasks.
Do it easier. Do it faster. Do it Lean.
