That’s the first step. The Lean gurus define this purging process as “sorting”—as in, sorting the garbage from the value. I prefer to think of it as common sense. There’s no point in paying rent on the square footage occupied by cabinets jammed with files inherited from your predecessor three years ago—files you’ve never looked at. There’s no point in creating files for all that useless paper. That would be tantamount to alphabetizing your garbage, and that’s pure waste. So, get a dumpster and toss all the detritus that has accumulated over the years—really.

Spotting Value, Spotting Waste ◾ 17 Allison isn’t alone, even if her story is dramatic. A 1997 Wall Street Journal survey of 2600 executives revealed that they spend six weeks per year simply looking for information.

1 hours per 12-hour shift on documentation. 2 million forms each year.
