Building a Lean Innovative Culture Through PDCA & CGP

Developing a Lean Innovations culture requires a commitment from leadership to develop and implement a strategic vision answering the question "What Does Great Look Like?"

Through what we call a "Partnership for Success", Leanovations provides much more than a set of lean tools and techniques to develop the culture.  We develop an organization's way of thinking.  The way they PLAN in everything they DO.  How they CHECK their progress, and the ACTIONS they take.  We call this the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) way of life. 

Leanovations also believes that Constant-Gentle-Pressure (CGP) is required for continuous improvements to be realized and we pride ourselves on providing CGP to our clients to ensure they stay on the path for success in their lean journey.

Leanovations provides interactive teaching and coaching to identify core competencies and developmental areas and provide a rich environment of ongoing self-awareness, learning and support that provides sustained results.
