The Lean Experience

The Lean Learning Center was founded in 2001 to address the gaps and barriers that are holding companies back from successful and sustainable lean transformation.

We found three primary failure modes in lean transformations that we set out to correct…

  1. An overreliance on the Lean tools. We believe that Lean is not born from the application of tools, but from a change in thinking and the resulting transformation in behavior and culture.
  2. Lack of effective and engaged leadership will sink the best of Lean efforts. A lean transformation must be supported by the leadership within an organization.
  3. Companies using the same techniques despite their unique culture and environment. We find that each company needs its own roadmap tailored to its unique business conditions, culture, processes, resources, and vision.
  • We believe in having the greatest impact with the smallest footprint.
  • We believe each client’s needs are different and therefore our service must change to match those needs.
  • Our mission is to transfer our knowledge and skills to the point of your self-sufficiency.

We are experts in the Lean space – continuous improvement, process improvement, and operational improvement – and a trusted advisor to our clients.

One particular strength that differentiates us is our expertise in the two areas that are required to be successful in this space: Adult Education and Execution. Our educational programs are founded on the Lean Rules and Principles and follow our highly effective “Learn, Apply, Reflect” adult learning methodology. Our execution and deployment methods, coupled with our consulting and our Lean Staffing Services, have a proven track record of success and a high rate of return on investment.

With nearly 200 years of combined service experience, The Lean Learning Center assists organizations with every aspect of a Lean transformation. Specifically, we provide:

  • Consulting services for Lean transformation
  • Lean education
