“My biggest problem was not having practical knowledge of lean tools. I’ve applied today’s learnings by identifying waste more intentionally on the shop floor and including shop employees in the entire process.”

Sam Martin, Continuous Improvement Specialist

“My biggest problem was not getting buy-in. Now I know how to ask the right questions and listen. I’ve applied the learnings by not beginning with the solution in mind, but by getting the facts using a scientific approach.”
