Abstract: Lean principles and lean management are increasingly implemented in various sectors of organisations. Lean has shown visible effects in enhancing productivity, reducing wastage of time and materials while still maintaining customer satisfaction as well as employee satisfaction. Lean philosophy is about people understanding their motives and aspirations. Most of the literature works on lean say that the key driver for lean implementation is employee involvement and satisfaction with the process. Hence lean always focuses on employee motivation and their work performance. This thesis is proposed to study on the impact of lean on job satisfaction in organisations. The research data will be collected using the survey tool by distributing questionnaires to organisations that implement lean principles. The respondents who belong to the group that handles everyday work process and services will be selected to participate in the survey. The research survey data will be analysed using Microsoft Excel along with statistical tools like Correlation in order to have an in depth understanding on the findings of the research proposed through several hypothesis.
