Success Stories

"After attending Lean 101, our dock manager immediately changed his floor and began talking to his guys about how they could be more efficient on the dock. He brought me a list of changes he thought we should implement. Thanks!" 
- Dennis Horrigan, Capital City Fruit

"DBR workplacelean facilitators trained a cross-departmental group in 'Process Mapping Basics'. Processes from admissions to payroll were improved, yielding significant time-savings as well as some cost-savings. Thanks to our new lean knowledge, our staff continues to see process improvement opportunities. Staff are also more proactive in thinking about how changes will affect others within the college."
- Sharon Grice, Director of Admission Operations, Cornell College

"Our accounts payable and purchase order processes involved too many steps, including too much paper and too many people. Workplacelean helped us map out the processes and identify areas for improvement. The project helped us implement electronic payments, purchasing cards and helped streamline the issuance of purchase orders. This resulted in savings to the City and provided a much more efficient process for our employees and vendors. The project was a success!" Read more
