This change is a result of heightened competition among businesses, which makes it necessary to look for novel accounting ideas in order to adapt to changing client demands and obtain a competitive edge. The study at hand aimed to identify the availability of necessary requirements to apply lean accounting in industrial companies in Lebanon. The researchers identified two types of components, administrative and procedural.
