Operating System

An organization’s operating system is the integration and coordination of thinking, systems, tools, and evaluation that establishes a guide for the development and improvement of all activities. It is designed to connect the organization’s intricate parts and interrelated steps to enable them to work together to achieve the business strategy. By establishing a system that follows lean rules and principles, you can improve your company’s consistency and performance.


Reasons to Use an Operating System

An operating system is like a playbook. It aligns departments, leaders, and employees and ensures that everyone is on the same page moving forward.  

Your operating system determines how you run your company and requires agreement from stakeholders on this issue. This supports the lean principle of establishing high agreement on what and how. All parties understand the organization’s goals and follow an agreed path to achieve them.

Benefits of an Operating System

A comprehensive operating system enables all workers in a lean organization to understand what’s expected of them and carry out their duties according to required standards. Having this kind of system in place creates consistent, predictable behavior. 

Management can count on knowing what to expect and from whom, without the chance of miscommunication and unexpected actions. This keeps everyone in the company aligned and moving forward in the same direction. 

High agreement of the tools to support work functions leads to systematic problem-solving. Companies can implement lean process improvement initiatives to address these issues when everyone in the organization uses the same steps to identify gaps between the current and ideal states.
