You can take charge of how the work gets done...

1. Start a conversation...

A free consultation. Let's get to know what you need and how this could help. Decide if this is right for you and develop a plan to get started.

2. Find your better ways

Start applying a structured system to your work. See and measure what's important. Understand how the work needs to get done. Apply just the tools that fit the problem.

3. Accelerate your Future

Increase your skill. Build capable Teams and Staff. Prevent Defects. Eliminate Delays. Reduce Waste. Enjoy building the Processes you can depend on for success.

Work is more complicated than ever. Customers and Clients are more demanding.  And so is your organization.  More value, less cost, delivered as promised.  Your existing improvement skills might not be enough.  Especially if you don’t have any time to use them.

You need skills that become automatic.  And have impact.  So that you can not only survive another day on the job, but actually have the time to take charge.  

Better results. More business.  A future you can look forward to.

Many improvement programs emphasize knowing – not doing.  You face a parade of concepts and tools – often without the repetition needed to master them.

Not enough doing leads to not enough skill.  …And no lasting improvement. 

AdaptiveLean begins with mastery of the fundamental 5 Skill pattern you’ll always need at the individual level.  You can then choose to add the AdaptiveLean based habits of a Daily Lean Management System as well as Project and Kaizen Event competence as your own needs might require.

  Think of how you actually spend your time each day!  How much of it is do-overs, fire-fighting and constant interruptions?  AdaptiveLean can often reduce this load by up to 30%.  But not all at once.  You might begin by “winning the first hour” of each day.  Lock those habits in and then build from there.  A constant series of small improvements along with some surprisingly big breakthroughs.  Download the “Top 5 Improvement Mistakes” Self Study below to get started.
