the art of flow

If traffic (the movement of people, goods & information) is the flow of human endeavor, then lean is the art of flow. It is a system that you embrace in order to eliminate bottlenecks, reduce lead times and increase quality. Lean is to process and flow what a P&L statement is to finance.
