If you are committed to transforming the operational effectiveness of your organization, the Lean Learning Center is the ideal consulting partner to work with to accomplish your goals.
As the saying goes, “Lean is a Journey, not a Destination.” Whether your journey is a total transformation or more directly focused, the Lean Learning Center provides the following solutions.
Integrated Lean Assessment
This on-site assessment will illuminate the current reality of your group or organization. We will then compare the current reality with your ideal state. Throughout the process, we will uncover specific gaps and give recommendations to help you achieve your objectives as we move closer and closer to your ideal state.
This process can be used as a getting-started tool, an input to the annual planning process, or a check-up along your lean journey. Both qualitative and quantitative, the assessment covers 13 wide-ranging categories – from material and information flow to problem-solving and employee engagement. A quantitative score helps you measure progress year-over-year, while qualitative feedback includes specific details, information on broad trends and issues as well as suggestions on how you can close the gap to your desired state.
If your organization has established its own operating system and principles, the Lean Learning Center can also custom design an assessment tool that provides feedback using your own language and criteria.
Lean transformation is a difficult and complex journey, requiring more than just fundamental leadership skills. Maximum leadership effectiveness requires a deeper level of skill and capabilities.

Operational Due Diligence
In the financial transaction services space, Operational Due Diligence (ODD) is the process of evaluating the operational aspects of a company prior to, during, or after an M&A/PE/VC transaction. Whether you engage in a transaction on the buy side or sell side, this process is critical to establishing the real value of a deal.
Using the principles of Lean thinking during ODD, on either side or at any stage of a transaction, is one of the best ways to identify significant, incremental value.
The Lean Learning Center provides research, analysis and documented recommendations by direct observation and analysis of your entire organization. As a result, we document the current operational state and identify opportunities for improvement that will unleash your organization’s optimal operational value.
