Success Stories

“workplacelean worked with MBS Genetics to successfully implement lean manufacturing and the A3 process of Root Cause Analysis in our company. As a satisfied customer, we have used the same Training Specialist now for 3 different sessions. Their ability to match the style and the lean training methods to our company culture made our onsite trainings an engaging and educational experience with positive results for our staff and our company.”
– Scott Saienga, MBS Genetics

“Our goal was to make our registration process as efficient as possible for our customers: the parents of our students. We eliminated over half of our one hundred-plus steps thanks to working with workplacelean. The simpler process allowed us to be more efficient with our time and money so we could do more value-added kinds of programs in our schools.”-Doug Stilwell, Superintendent Urbandale Iowa Public Schools  Read more...

“We have engaged workplacelean for a number of different projects. Simplifying our processes by eliminating unnecessary steps has saved our staff a lot of time (and headaches). As the community college serving the entire state of Indiana, Ivy Tech has always been student focused, but with each new lean project we are able to serve our students better and our budget increasingly reflects our true priorities.”

"Thanks to the SEM process improvements workplacelean helped us identify and implement, TCC's enrollment practices are now documented and more seamless and efficient than ever before.  In the end, our work will improve our service to students."- James Toscano, Vice President for Public Affairs & Communications, Tidewater Community College (VA)  Read more...

“The DBR facilitators took a very complex process and demonstrated it in a way that made it seem elementary. They also did a wonderful job keeping us on track and focused on the steps in the processes, versus how we felt about the processes. When they encouraged us to try our hand at facilitating the process, it made the training even more practical and memorable. I’m excited and ready to implement what I learned.”

- Shaunita Skykes, First Year and Nursing Program Advisor, Tidewater Community College (VA)

When I started here at the company, I was lost on how to find certain items in the computer and at my desk. My papers were in files and duplicates in other files. After the Electronic 5S class, I spent a few hours going through everything and getting organized. I converted a lot of documents to PDF’s on our shared drive so that everyone can see them without making 30 copies. I have incorporated the 5S system into my daily routines here at work and even at home. This training made a world of difference in improving my productivity and reducing stress.”
- Dave Hunt, Hardware Purchasing Agent, Walsh Door Company
