About Lean Pathways
We are veterans of leading Lean companies who have grasped the Lean Business System through years of practice, and by studying with Lean masters in Japan and North America.
What makes Lean Pathways Unique?
Our story-telling approach: War stories, metaphors, and images improve comprehension and retention of our teaching.
Real experience: Our approach is based on empirical evidence -- and years of experience in a broad range of industries and business processes. We’ve learned that ‘less is more’ is not only possible -- but more fun too.
We build capability -- not dependency: Our philosophy is learn-by-do. We develop your capability through Socratic questioning, simulations, homework assignments and teach-back activities.

Over the next decade we believe Lean thinking will develop, deepen and will take root across all industry including healthcare, design, information technology, finance, insurance, government and the military. It will continue to proliferate outside of production and help to improve work upstream in sales, marketing, design, and engineering and downstream in transportation, retail and customer service.
