LEAN INNOVATION METHODS: INSIGHTS ABOUT ITS APPLICATION & EVALUATION DURING A STUDENT PROJECT
Lean Innovation is an approach that supports companies in developing more innovative products with a lower resource consumption. The available methods help to incorporate the abstract Lean Innovation principles in processes. However, many case studies discuss the overall implementation of Lean without focusing on the methods in particular. The paper provides empirical insights by applying and evaluating two Lean Innovation Methods during a student project. The results show that the project benefited from the application but it also required effort to overcome the resistance of the people.
