Notes from Jeff
Dear %$firstname$%,

I want to start by thanking all of you who have downloaded my free Lean forms. These tools have rapidly become some of Velaction’s most popular new content for both leaders and frontline employees.

And speaking of great new content, this month’s featured article is on the principles that govern Lean in the office. I’ve been using these for years as the backbone of my Lean consulting philosophy. In this article, you’ll learn my secrets to achieving Lean success.

As always, best wishes on your Lean journey.
