The present paper describes a combined approach to corporate foresight and lean-management. When companies implement lean-management, they are often faced with a broad range of barriers such as top-management resistance, slow response to market change, etc. Inasmuch as in near future we will expect Industry 4.0, planning horizon gradually changes. To overcome the new challenges at the company, we propose to use the combined approach foresight and lean manufacturing. It will allow companies to set aim and goals not only a period of 10-15 years, but also to bring all the details to the operational level, therefore every employee will aware of in which direction the company is moving. Based on a review of theoretical and methodological approaches and the investigation of the implementation experience of lean-management and foresight approach taking into account conditions of trends in Industry 4.0, human and time resources. The present paper intends to provide the conceptual basic for testing the developed model later.
