We help organizations improve

Are you frustrated by poor communication and wasted effort and money in your organization? Lean East helps organizations improve their effectiveness to maximize customer value. We teach and coach employee teams as they identify and eliminate wastes in processes, raising service and quality levels while reducing operating costs. Lean East improvement projects typically have a 10x ROI (return on investment) for the organization.

Based in Maine and serving New England and the eastern United States, Lean East trainers and coaches have spent their careers leading organizational change that achieves measurable, lasting results. We are experts in Lean Six Sigma and project management and have led transformations in many organizations. We believe you bring out the best in organizations by bringing out the best in the people.
