Philosophy

For me, this is True North:

  • Develop lean thinking leaders
  • Who are able to apply lean principles to their own processes
  • And teach others to do the same,
  • Producing environments where learning and improvement
  • Are ongoing and continuous.

My goal as a consultant is to help you develop your internal lean capability. My responsibility as a lean consultant is to develop skills and strengths in my clients, not to create dependency. My reputation for service is the only stock in trade I can depend on in the long run.

With over 30 years' experience, I understand consulting as a process, practice, and discipline.

My principle areas of lean consulting expertise, all experience based, include these domains:

  • Aerospace and defense manufacturing and refurbishing
  • Food processing
  • Basic metal mills and foundries
  • Chemical and petrochemical production and maintenance
  • Mining and energy production and maintenance
  • High volume discrete manufacturing
  • Build / engineer to order manufacturing
  • Automotive OEM suppliers
  • Precision machining operations
  • Microelectronics component and end-item manufacturing
  • Financial services companies
  • Hospital inpatient, emergency, and procedure areas
  • Physician practices
  • Executive coaching
  • Product distributors and distribution centers.
