"Ladies Who Lean"

Updated: Apr 17, 2020

When Lean Practitioners Gail Birks and Yvette Branch decided that they needed to share their version of the impact that Lean Six Sigma has done for their businesses and their clients past and present.

Both ladies agree that the universe of lean has morphed itself into all hallways (and boardrooms) within business and industry. From HR to Finance and Distribution, and even the Marketing industry is becoming an advocate of the world of efficiency and effectiveness. Consultative Sales is integrated with lean methodology and we will share with you some of those strategies.

Fast forward... Ms. Branch and Ms. Birks decided to bring you their lean girlfriend chats now known as "LADIES WHO LEAN." In a recent interview with the ladies, each was asked "why now?" Ms. Branch replied that so many people don't know that this is not a complicated process and that you don't have to be in a manufacturing or technical business to use apply this universe. Ms. Birks also concurred and shared that the world has already embraced this discipline in their way of doing business. This is our opportunity to extend a more layperson's perspective and introduce Lean at "Home" in such a way that it is easy to embrace.
