Principles of Lean Thinking

Welcome to my website


Most of you are coming to this website because you have been listening to my latest book, Developing Lean Leaders at All Levels. Thank you for making that purchase.

This website represents my humble origins. I created an online course in 2006 which was taken by over 100,000 people from over 40 countries around the world. The manual for that online course is available to the left. This was my first online course creation and I have made the videos available below for free. 

If you are looking to implement Lean in your organization, I am the superhero that can help. My mission is to unleash people’s true potential and help profit-minded executives train and develop the next generation of superheroes.

The 5 Principles of Lean Thinking are;  1)  Define Value from the customer’s perspective, 2) Identify the Value Stream, 3) Make the Process Flow, 4) Pull from the Customer, and 5) Strive for Perfection.

After watching these videos, advance to the next level on my superhero chart. Allow me to be your Lean coach by setting up our first meeting at no cost.
