Welcome to Your LEAN Journey!

By now, you've probably either toured Cambridge or read Paul Aker's 2 Second Lean book. Perhaps, you've just stumbled upon this community page through simple Google search. Either way: we're glad you're here! We've created this microsite as a resource to help companies who recognize the benefits of a Lean culture and the effect it has on their employees and everyday worklife. Beyond work, the process can be taken home and can reduce struggle or eliminate unnecessary stress.

We don't want to create the impression that Cambridge became Lean easily or quickly - because we didn't. After being exposed to Paul Akers' ideas and the umbrella concepts in mainstream Lean, it realistically took us 6-12 months to feel that we had made lasting changes that were truly making a difference. Many companies give up during this time frame and Lean becomes a "It was a good try" scenario. But, if you are really wanting to know how to get started, and how to make it last, then we hope you use this microsite not only for its resources, but to also offer your own suggestions and to create a community of learning and sharing that all Lean maniacs can use, not just those who are starting out.

Please enjoy and if you have any questions or feedback, or would like to take a tour of our facility, please reach out to us at (636)532-6165.
