    Here's what our clients are saying...

    "To truly change habits, and culture you need a consistent and pervasive influence that penetrates the organization at all levels.  Leanovations has delivered on this.  The Constant-Gentle-Pressure that Leanovations applies has started a new mindset in our company, a thought process driven to eliminate waste and constantly improve.  Results gained from this "Partnership for Success" have transformed the most skeptical of our employees, and have fueled a passion to grow profitably.  Changing culture is not just a part of the game, it is the game, and we have begun to do it here at RSS, driven by our early success, full management commitment and the Constant-Gentle-Pressure from Leanovations".
    John Dellalana
    Rowley Spring & Stamping 
    “Fred Shamburg and the Leanovations team has been instrumental in helping me understand what it really takes to be successful in accomplishing a Lean Culture, through engaging and empowering the employees.  We would not be enjoying the successful we have without Fred’s CGP (constant gentle pressure).  Leanovations helped us make rapid early progress while helping us develop the critical mass of internal Lean talent that is needed to sustain positive operational excellence momentum. I have recommended Leanovations to many of our suppliers as developing a strong value stream is what will allow everyone to enjoy the transforamtion.” 
    Doug Eccleston
    Vice-President Worldwide Operations
    Zygo Corporation 
    "Never a day goes by that I am not “in awe” of Leanovations.  You guys are without a doubt the most competent and thorough consultants that I have had the opportunity to work with during my 22 years at BGHS. Thank you for all of your hard work and willingness to help BGHS to improve."
    Sandy Lombardi, MA MBA
    Director of Community Support Services
    Birmingham Group Health Services, Inc.

    "At MAC we believe the choice of a Sensei is THE most important decisions to ensure a successful a Lean initiative.  Choose the wrong Sensei and you will not only waste your company’s time and money, you will not get organizational buy-in.  We decided to partner with Fred and Leanovations as our “go-to” Sensei, which was one of the best decisions we’ve ever made.  Fred and his team have a depth of experience and knowledge that is hard to match. His excellent communication and teaching style made the Lean journey “ours” right from the start and as a result MAC people have a strong sense of Lean ownership.  In the past year our Lean business results have been absolutely terrific, receiving praise from many of our key Customers plus a highly successful 3P event which resulted in a new patented product!  Partnering with Fred and Leanovations was an “OUTSTANDING” decision by MAC and I would give Leanovations my highest endorsement."

    Ernie Iznaga

    Vice President, Operations

    MAC Equipment, Inc.


    "Fred was really the perfect fit for our company, he tailored the training to our company, and we really needed someone who would roll up his sleeves and look closely at our situation. Fred's training is forcing us to address our weaknesses, I am not sure many of the other consultants would have connected with us so well".
    Paul Stefanik
    The GAMMONS Hoaglund Company


    “Our experience with Leanovations has been very positive and timely, as a major portion of our business relies upon the building industry.  With our major focus on our lean initiative's to accomplish smaller orders, faster deliveries, and controlling costs, several of the largest buying groups within the Plumbing Wholesale industry have expressed their excitement with our efforts and results thus far.  Thank you Leanovations for your energetic and resourceful approach, and maintaining such a positive perspective within each and every event...which is extremely effective, and motivational.”
