Best Practices Discovery Project 2018

The Best Practices Discovery Project is running annually since 2015 under the organization and sponsorship of the Lean Analytics Association (LAA) and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).

A BEST PRACTICE is a solution that has consistently produced positive and sustainable results compared to those achieved by other means.

LEAN INNOVATION is the application of lean thinking principles across the entire value-chain including the new product development.
