Job Outlook for Lean Managers
The US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) forecasts 6% job growth between now and 2029 among Administrative Services and Facilities Managers, which the BLS defines as those who “plan, direct, and coordinate activities that help an organization run efficiently.” This is faster than the growth rate expected for all jobs. The BLS attributes this growth to retirement rates among current managers and a continued focus on improving efficiencies in organizations of all sizes. According to PayScale.com, Lean Managers earn $94,044 per year, on average. Annual salaries for early-career Lean Managers range between $45-93,000 during the first four years of their careers. Entry-level Lean Facilitators with less than one year of experience earn $55,000 per year, on average.
