Jay Watson is the Lean thinker behind this site. It grew from a passion of implementing Lean on the shop floor at companies like Motorola, Honeywell, and General Electric. He started the site to make "lean thinking" concepts of continuous improvement highly accessible for practitioners in North America.
Our primary focus is on accelerating the developmental process, sustaining the effort, and most importantly - driving for results.
The majority of the training modules are absolutely free to download and modify as needed. A management improvement process focused on elements of Safety, Quality, and Speed of Execution provides a framework for action.
The site has four major sections to aid in finding the right resource:
Jay also provides some advice on implementing Lean by defining a Lean Roadmap.The roadmap consists of the following three phases:
PHASE 1 (GET READY): PLANNING FOR IMPROVEMENT
PHASE II (GET SET): CONDUCTING A PILOT PROGRAM
PHASE III (GO!): TEAM PROBLEM SOLVING/ SKILLS DEVELOPMENT
I have been truly amazed by the sheer amount of Lean related material that Jay has compiled. This is a great resource for learning on your own or sharing with your team.
