Leaders need to Earn their Team's Cooperation!  We Listen to you for producing our videos

How the NEW Image of LeanExpertise and all our other Websites will serve you better?  

The Internet demands that we look for new ways of serving our visitors and frequent readers.

To increase that service and apply Lean Principles to the production of our pages, we have moved from Adobe DreamWeaver to a more current and agile web development system called XSitePro. At this time (end of 2011), we are at the very beginning of the “learning curve.”

The new image will not only be in the design of each of our websites, but mostly in their functionality. You will find Faster The Information you Want!

As usual we encourage our readers to help us improve the contents and the flow of the websites.

On the left side of the pages there is a directory and a navigation map that is very useful for you to find what you are looking for.

We also are connecting some articles to our videos which refer to the subject. As usual, your comments and suggestions are highly appreciated.

Here we have a few links to our most popular pages. We will gradually update these to the "new look." Thank you for being visitors and readers of Lean Expertise, the Lean Manufacturing Excellence site. We welcome your help and contributions. Remember to Contact Us when you have ideas, articles, critiques, or suggestions for us...
