The Power of Lean Processes: Enhancing Client Experience at Tanner LLC

Your most precious resource as a business leader is time, and we understand that both your time and the time of our team members are invaluable. Time is the one resource on earth that is spread evenly to every person alive. We all have exactly 1,440 minutes each day. Every minute is precious, and we go to extraordinary lengths to save our clients’ time and overall disruption to what they truly care about – building their businesses.

Over the past three years, we have invested considerable time and resources re-engineering our financial statement audit process to adopt Lean Six-Sigma (LSS). LSS methodology, which originated in manufacturing to improve efficiency, has found versatile applications in finance and accounting. By integrating these principles into our audit processes, we have transformed the way we serve our clients.

Lean Six-Sigma: A Game Changer in Auditing

Lean Six-Sigma combines lean manufacturing processes, which aim to eliminate waste and increase value, with Six-Sigma’s focus on reducing variability and improving quality. At Tanner, we’ve tailored this approach to fit the unique demands of financial auditing. Here’s how:

  1. Efficiency and Precision: Each of our teams is meticulously trained in our lean audit methodology. This ensures that they not only conduct thorough and precise audits but also do so in the most efficient manner possible. By minimizing unnecessary steps and focusing on key areas, we reduce the time spent on audits significantly.
  2. Advanced Collaboration and Automation: Leveraging the latest in collaboration and automation technologies, our auditors can streamline processes and improve communication both within our team and with our clients. This reduces the back-and-forth typically associated with audits, speeding up the process without compromising quality.
  3. Minimizing Client Disruption: We understand that an audit can be a disruptive process. Our lean approach ensures that we complete audits with the least interruption to our clients’ daily operations. By planning meticulously and executing efficiently, we help our clients maintain their business rhythm while we carry out our work.
