What are Lean practices?

A business process focusing on the removing of "non-value-added activities", or "wastes", in order to increase customer value. Effectively it’s basically clearing the existing processes of crap that doesn't need to be there, and when that is done you can assume that the product and company will have increased value. A.k.a. if you have a 17 step process that can be done in 5 steps, why waste time on the other 12 steps? There is no point, and it takes longer time to complete. Removing those 12 would mean a quicker process and happier customers and staff. There are many different types of Lean processes like; SCRUM, Kanban, Agile, and Poka Yoke.
