Karen’s Books:

Every lean practitioner says that leadership support is required to reap the benefits of adopting Lean practices.


You can apply lean principles and tools such as visual management, flow, pull, 5S, and kaizen to your individual work to improve efficiency, reduce waste, and link yourself ever more closely to customer value.

While it's true that applying lean at the individual level won't lead to an overnight revolution in corporate performance, it can lead to success stories that can get your leadership to sit up and pay attention.

Guest presenter Dan Markovitz will share specific strategies from his new book, A Factory of One, that will help you use lean principles to make yourself and your teams more effective—whether or not leadership gets it.
