Lean Coaching


In order to sustain a lean culture, it is vital that all employees in the organization have a common language of problem solving. The Toyota Business Practices approach, known also as A3 Problem Solving, must become the problem solving mindset. This thought process must be used in any effort to improve from current condition to target condition, whether it is at a strategy level or tactical, front-line level. Our approach to coaching utilizes the Improvement Kata / Coaching Kata methodology.  1:1 coaching is currently available in-person for select clients or remotely utilzing Zoom or the remote communication tool of your choice.
