"Lean", near as I can tell before I glazed over, is the latest name for "continuous improvement", "Total Quality Management", etc. Every few years execs dredge this up, rebadge it, marvel at their handiwork, beat their chests, and pass it downstream.

Already been through it. Just another way for management to find a job for a manager going out the door.

"lean coordinator"
