Lean Operating System (LOS)

For every organization the strategic management process helps identify what they intend to achieve and how they will accomplish valued outcomes. The magnitude of the challenge is even greater today than it was a couple of years ago. A new competitive landscape is developing as a result of the never-ending technological revolution and increasing globalization.

In business as a whole we have a hard time focusing.  We can write Strategic Plans all day long, but if we don’t get in sync with each other quickly we will not be able to compete in this never-ending technological revolution.  As we see it, only the strong, team-focused organizations will survive.


There is always a lot of lip service on improving the process, but very little action in regards to decreasing our processing and throughput issues.  We have to ask ourselves, “What are we doing to improve our bottom line?"  The answer is quite simple...the HOLOS LEAN OPERATING SYSTEM.


The “Lean Operating System” (LOS) helps entrepreneurs, management and executives draft, implement, execute and evaluate the strategic decisions that will enable the organization to achieve its short and long-term objectives. If an organization's improvement efforts are not aligned with business goals and objectives it will be very difficult to sustain. Without a defined plan and a way to convey that plan, there will be no clear destination to head towards.


An analogy for LOS is to think of your company on a journey toward a specific destination. LOS is the tool to help you first determine the final destination and secondly define how to get there!  This will allow organizations to shift through and beyond their current business paradigm and create a new one that embraces beneficial change. It’s important to start your change process by aligning everyone and making sure they are all heading in the same direction.


An important part of preparing to reach this final destination is:

  • Create breakthrough experiences that forge innovative growth within the organization.
  • Define Business Fundamentals to sustain incremental operational improvements in productivity.
  • Provide your team with a clear message and purpose – creating leverage for everyone to fully engage in the change process.
  • Learn to create balanced scorecards used to evaluate the overall performance of the business and its progress towards objectives.
