Values + Behaviors = Serious Joy

Are you ready to get serious about joyfully solving problems? We strive to empower each other through our shared knowledge, networks, and resources to learn and grow. We get uncomfortable and support each other in our quest to improve ourselves, our teams, and our enterprises. We disrupt the status quo – we joyfully pursue perfect processes. We keep striving! We keep smiling!

Listen and Learn so we can Lead through Lean with Love

We strive to provide an atmosphere of love, support, and encouragement at our huddles for learning about lean leadership, operational excellence, and continuous improvement. We maintain an environment of trust and openness so that everyone can contribute ideas freely without fear of judgement or criticism.
