Paying Forward, Giving Back

 

Lean Portland is a team of independent Lean professionals and practitioners who believe in the power of Lean to transform people and organizations from the inside out. Since 2010, we’ve shared these principles with thousands of individuals by:

  • Working directly with non-profit leadership teams to help them implement Lean practices into their cultures.
  • Organizing volunteers for Lean improvement projects for non-profit organizations in the Portland area.
  • Hosting events and workshops to educate our community about Lean concepts and Lean leadership.
  • Providing networking opportunities for all experience levels of Lean professionals.
