A Lean Journey is POSSIBLE with Leanbrella
"If you have read the book Change, Culture, and Continuous Improvement, Lulu Publishing, you will have an understanding of the strategies, tactics, time, and effort put into reviving a company from a 'near death experience to one of industry leadership and enviable business returns'. A lean journey over many years sustained to this day...
A few people led that journey, a slightly larger group facilitated that journey, and virtually everyone in the company made the journey. Those that facilitated the journey developed a deep understanding of the Lean tools and principles, how to use them to eliminate waste, and improve performance.
Some that helped facilitate the journey are now pursuing other opportunities, such as Michelle Scullin Crute at Leanbrella. Michelle has the understanding and the facilitation skills to help others make that same journey, and have the same impact on performance.
If you have a performance improvement need or opportunity... Michelle Scullin Crute can help."
