Janaina M.H. Costa is a postdoctoral associate with the Lean Advancement Initiative (LAI) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

She is interested in understanding what are the appropriate metrics that reveal the impact of implementing lean product development methods, tools and practices. Her interests include product development improvement approaches, with a special focus on process diagnosis. She believes that process diagnosis is one of the main practices companies should perform in order to identify the most relevant improvement opportunities. The analysis and evaluation of these opportunities allow the team to focus their attention where it is needed most.
