Our comprehensive lean transformation program provides your team with all the tools and knowledge required to craft a sustainable organization. We significantly improve your ROI by compounding the synergistic effects of four critical components working together:
- Methodology: Our research and experience has revealed the key to success is executing well-defined projects. These projects must engage employees to eliminate waste, deliver significant improvements, and then transition each value stream to continuous improvement.
- Measurement: Achieving bottom line results and changing the organizational culture are critical aspects of any lean program. We provide tools for measuring what’s important and tracking the cultural transformation. You will know progress is being made.
- Coaching: Our experts provide guidance at the critical milestones. We help you organize for success, select the right projects, assess your progress, and become leaders in the lean community. We bring the assessments, knowledge, experience, and templates you need.
- Community: The power of multiple organizations leveraging the same program allows everyone to share best practices and seek help from others who have overcome similar challenges. Our community is actively collaborating to incorporate emerging trends into our program and share knowledge of what works and what doesn’t.
While each of the above four components provide great value, it is the synergy between them which allows our comprehensive program to be much greater than the sum of the parts. As a result, your ability to craft a sustainable organization is far better than any alternative approach.
Let’s look closer and each component.

The 5 Principles of Lean (Specify Value, Identify Value Streams, Create Flow, Leverage Pull, and Seek Perfection) are at the core of our methodology. Through the systematic application of these principles, we teach your team how to focus on value, as specified by stakeholders, and eliminate waste in all value streams.
The framework for learning, and applying the lean tools, is built into our project-based training courses. These courses provide the right level of knowledge and skills for everyone in your organization.
You leverage our competitive advantage as we help you craft the right projects and empower your employees to deliver improvement. A typical approach is to start with one team and one project. You then progress to two teams and two projects, then three, and then four, and continue to the point where you have everyone fully engaged.
The cultural transformation occurs as employees are engaged and everyone begins to use a systematic approach to specify value and eliminate waste.
Our research has identified how executive sponsors, of a lean transformation program, want proof the cultural transformation is taking place. Leaders want to know the score.
We accomplish this by taking the pulse of the culture, for an organization, at the beginning of the journey and monitor progress at key milestones. We help your leadership team see how the culture is improving, as employees become engaged in projects and begin eliminating waste.
Beyond the aspect of a cultural transformation, we also evaluate the performance, of your value streams, to ensure your organization is becoming more effective. Success looks like improved customer service, increased revenue, reduced costs, faster product development, and happy stakeholders.
