Lean Accounting

When com­pa­nies start embrac­ing Lean man­age­ment and pro­duc­tion prac­tices, they often find that their exist­ing account­ing process no longer aligns with big-pic­ture busi­ness objec­tives.

Lean Account­ing applies Lean prin­ci­ples to account­ing and finance to dri­ve improve­ment by elim­i­nat­ing waste, improv­ing inter­nal process­es, and deliv­er­ing more val­ue to the end-con­sumer.

Gem­ba Acad­e­my’s Lean Account­ing course is designed to help your account­ing and finance teams shift away from tra­di­tion­al account­ing prac­tices toward a new way of think­ing about finances.
