Enterprise Lean Planning
The answer to many challenges of our times

The new Enterprise Lean Planning management system is a pragmatic response to the many challenges companies are facing today. Challenges including uncertainty, reduced time-to-market, resource rarefaction, process complexity, regulations and ethical responsibility, to name a few.

By optimizing decision-making at the different strategic, operational and tactical levels of the company, Enterprise Lean Planning uncovers performance gains that were lying at the heart of non-optimized and non-integrated planning processes.

Make the most of all your resources

By abandoning cost-based logic and embracing one based on value, companies and shareholders will also use the ground-breaking simulation capabilities ELP offers. The way they conceive and implement their strategies is thus improved, whether it is association with investments, human resources, new product introductions, marketing or procurement.

By dynamically interconnecting the various upstream and downstream information data flows, ELP also enables better use of existing ERP systems. It makes the existing investments in ERP systems more profitable and in turn, reduces their TCO.

A paradigm shift that benefits all stakeholders

By allowing company members to concentrate on value-added tasks, offering them stability in task execution, better balancing professional and personal lives, or allowing them to devote more time to training, ELP not only fosters well-being at work, but it also creates the conditions for long-term performance.

Unlike “zero-sum game” logic, the paradigm shift introduced by the ELP management system demonstrates that an approach to management revisited through the perspective of the rapid sharing of information, the rational use of resources, and adherence to PDCA cycles, can benefit all stakeholders.

The advantages that this new management system generates for company members therefore do not arise at the expense of other categories of stakeholders. Instead, they propagate throughout the company and have a positive impact on the interests of all, whether they are employees, executives, managers, shareholders, suppliers, or customers.

A compass and a map to guide your transformations

With the help of the ELP system, the company’s transformation is now perceived from an overall performance point of view, making each stage of the transformation a lever for reaching global performance,  and not an end in itself.

The implementation of the ELP management system acts both as a compass and a map. This is because it sets the course (moving towards Global Performance), and provides the order of priority in which the different transformation actions must be undertaken.
