Lean Champions Successes

Listen to past participants as they discuss the benefits of Lean Champions and what it has gained for them and their businesses.

Lean does work. It empowers the workforce to be self managing and improves the quality of your product. The fact that DVIRC is a local company with nearby training facilities has been very valuable. It’s easy to send our employees there for off-site sessions and great to have DVIRC support close at hand.
