Professional Interests

Networking, conference workshops and speaking, advancing the body of knowledge for lean improvement


I work with organizations and teams to teach them how to deliver continuous improvement of performance and culture through the application of lean thinking.  A high performing organization delivers double digit improvement in staff morale and engagement, quality, lead-time for products and services, cost performance, and growth.
