Reshape Your Bottom Line

Strategic plans are great, but how are you going to implement?

The Lean Manufacturing Certification Program will help change agents understand and ultimately teach the core values of Lean. This approach is an overall business and cultural analysis of standardization, employee empowerment and continuous improvement.

Most programs focus only on the technical aspects. This program will teach social systems as well as technical systems. Sociology drives technology. If management understands social systems and culture, the organization will operate more successfully.

"Everyday we must make one small improvement to our home, work, and community life. The Americans are obsessed with our technical systems, but no one is concerned with the culture that will develop them."
