2013 Lean Coaching Summit

I have not been fully accepted as a Lean Management expert in Alaska, despite leading a successful cultural transformation of a non-profit organization here over 9 years. The year I left the organization, I led an effort and freed up about $700,000 in cash. The effort was not well understood or appreciated at the organization. Over the course of 9 years, we freed up almost $3.0 million in value from a budget of about $10.5 million to start with. This is a concept I will try to explain more fully at the Summit.

The story I tell about how to accomplish similar results at other organizations is, however, well accepted in the lower 48 (what we call the contiguous 48 states). I will be telling that story once again at the 2013 Lean Coaching Summit in Hilton Head, South Carolina on July 24th. In the past, I have presented the lean transformation I led at conferences on lean healthcare, the National Congress of American Indians and the TWI Summits. The story is real, and can be replicated elsewhere.

I am also incredible excited to hear the other stories that will be told at the Summit. I still have a lot to learn, and this is one phenomenal place to learn at.


  1. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any
    widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest
    twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in
    like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like
    this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I
    look forward to your new updates.

  2. I hope that people will learn many new things from 2013 lean Coaching summit. Thanks for sharing this useful information with us.
