Lean 101 teaches Lean Principles for people in all areas of businesses, the 5 Principles of Lean Thinking originate from the Toyota Production System.

How long is the course? The course is about 5 hours in length and can be done on any computer, at any time, and any where.

How is this course relevant or useful for that segment of the workforce? This course will identify with your customers current challenges in business. It begins with a review of what your business practices are currently and then it asks that you identify WASTEFUL activities in your position. About 95% of all workplace activities will be considered WASTE from a customer’s perspective. YES, 95%. This recognition empowers and teaches the student practical processes and improvements for positive change.

How advanced is the course? The “101” suggests it is a basic intro to the principles of lean manufacturing, but how does it go a step further than what someone could find in Wikipedia or on the Lean 101 website? This course uses real life situations. By looking at real people describe their real workplace dilemma; this lean training assists the student with the ability to recognize how similar their workplace situation is to the example provided in this course.

Ideas Worth Sharing

Change Through Exchange

In 2017 we worked with Joseph Ranseth and the TEDxExchangeDistrict team to get people talking about things that matter, show off some of the great things happening in our communities. What resulted is one of the most inspiring groups of community leaders coming together with a common purpose.

The concept of “change through exchange” is not a new one, in fact it’s centuries old. Putting a modern-day twist on it by identifying the issues most relevant to our city, our speakers were hand-selected from two categories of people:

1. Who are the world-class thinker and doers in our city that have something the world needs to hear about?

2. Who are the best-in-class from around the world that have proven ideas and knowledge that will benefit our community that we can bring in to share with us?

About TEDx


In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
