How it works

 

RECOGNIZE

The process begins with a discussion with your Certified LEAN Advisor about your business and the goals and obstacles.

OBSERVE

During a LEAN Event, our advisors will conduct a walk-through of your facility to identify areas of opportunity. We use LEAN’s 5S methodology to analyze your workflow, product usage and more, and uncover hidden waste.

IMPLEMENT

Perhaps the most valuable element of LEAN is to sustain improvements. And we make sure of it. Your advisor stays on the journey with you, checking-in and making sure values stick.
