Curious about what people say about us & our services?
''After completion of section 1 of the Lean Concepts, Inc. training program in our Portland, IN facility, there is not an area of the plant that has not seen some type of Lean Activity in the form of 5S or Visual Management. Many of these activities have taken place aside from the training. Shadow boards are now common in most areas of the plant. They have brought the tools out of the tool boxes and made them much easier to find and keep track of. The overall organization has given the plant a "professional" feel." In addition "The employees have embraced the Lean concepts and are beginning to challenge the way we do things in order to find a "lean" approach. Several employees have stepped up and taken on the role of team leader in the Kaizen and mini events held in the plant. In addition to the "Lean" benefits of this training, we feel it has gone far in the general leadership development of our personnel.''
''John and his team did an excellent job training our people about Lean and how to apply it all the different aspects of the company, not just in production. We did 5S, Standard Work and Value Stream Maps with the help of John and his team at Lean Concepts. John continues working until his customer is satisfied with the results and ensures that the Kaizen events always produce positive improvements. This includes improvements in safety, quality, delivery and cost.''
''John is a consummate professional and a highly knowledgeable lean practitioner. John has held many training events both in the classroom and on the shop floor with great results. John is extremely personable and can communicate effectively at all levels of the organization to drive positive change. John’s most valuable asset is his ability to relate to people who are afraid of the term “Lean Manufacturing” and motivate them to move forward on the lean journey without fear. I have been extremely pleased with our decision to partner with John and Lean Concepts, Inc.'''
''John's vast experience as a Lean practitioner earned credibility with all associates in our organization. The results have been visible and sustaining. John's ability to provide a foundation and allow the process owners to determine the outcome has proved to be very valuable.''
