Concept of the VII Russian Lean Forum

From Lean Production to Sustainable Development

In unstable times when everybody is beginning to understand that the economical crisis hasn’t gone too far, while new waves of recession are rolling in the European zone, the factor of sustainability is becoming crucial.

Sustainability is the ability of a system to sustain its current state against outside impact. It’s when the market goes down by 50%, and you are still on your feet and continuing to develop.

Sustainable Development is continuous improvement based on long-term alignment between the interests of business and society, their balanced development in harmony with each other and with the environment. It’s when you are not only on your feet when everyone else is falling, but you are also continuing to develop even faster without endangering future generations.

How to organize the process of transformation to align the use of natural resources, investment targets, modernizing enterprises, developing people and processes, society and culture, so that they strengthen the current and future potential to satisfy human needs and aspirations?   

The main task of the Forum is to show how the objective of sustainable development can and must be efficiently achieved at the level of government, society, business, company and individual person – for harmony and balance of interests of all the stakeholders.
