Lean Consulting Services Overview

photo

Our model for Lean Transformation is different than most other lean consulting firms. Our value add is in the coaching and training we provide to facilitate culture change while developing our clients' internal competencies. We are not interested in providing armies of consultants to lead improvements and thus make our clients fully dependent on us. Instead, we build our clients' capability by creating daily management and daily kaizen systems that will self-sustain. This approach fits in with principle 1 of the Toyota Way: "Base your management decisions on a long-term philosophy, even at the expense of short-term financial goals.” While our competitors may end up with more revenue from an engagement than we might in the short term, our clients are happier and gladly recommend us again and again.
