MSME Competitive (Lean) Scheme can be attained in THREE Levels after registering and taking the Lean Pledge:
a) Every MSME that embarks on the journey of Lean (Basic, Intermediate, Advanced) will have to take a “Lean Pledge” before undertaking the journey of implementation of lean tools and techniques.
b) The intent of taking a Lean Pledge is to take a “pre-commitment” or a solemn promise by MSMEs to uphold the values of Lean Practices and Philosophy in their functioning and to urge them to move ahead on the journey of Lean.
c) After taking the Lean Pledge, the MSME can apply for handholding of its units depending on the need and level of preparedness and interest of MSME unit. Lean Scheme can be implemented by MSME units in the above three levels.
