IMPORTANT: BE SURE TO CLICK YOUR CONFIRMATION LINK OR YOUR MEMBERSHIP WON’T ACTIVATE
We don’t want SPAMBOTS flooding our site with automated registrations, or prospective members using incorrect or fake email addresses. And you don’t want a world full of spammers that don’t comply with CAN-SPAM requirements and flood your mailbox with messages you don’t want. So, we use ‘double opt-in’ to make sure emails addresses are valid and messages are going to active inboxes that people check.
Shortly after signing up, you’ll get an email with a confirmation link. Once you click that, you activate the subscription part of your membership so we can send you the instructions on how to get the free content.
With your membership, you’ll get a series of welcome messages to introduce you to our site and all it has to offer. As part of this introduction, you’ll get codes that can be used to either get a product or bundle for free, or get a better value on an upgraded offer.
The release schedule is still in the works, but the bottom line is that we want to keep you happy. While we can’t guarantee that this offer won’t change, we know the value of a loyal member.

The Gotta Go Lean blog has produced hundreds of articles over the years. Some are short and to the point. Some are focused on a current event. We even do book reviews and podcasts. But many of the articles are also extensive works about a continuous improvement topic. We have packages some of the best into PDF files for our members.
You’ll also unlock extended member-only content on many pages, such as our Lean strategies. The bottom line is that becoming a member lets you access loads of great content.
Keep in touch!
Once the standard sign-up series is done, your benefits don’t end. You’ll still have access to the site as long as you remain subscribed to our updates.
We’ll also continue to make member-only offers on our products. Plus, we’ll let you know about any events we will be putting on for you. We host webinars, and are constantly adding to our bag of tricks. We plan to do member-only screenings of videos on YouTube, and have been working on a video studio so we can shoot short answers to your questions. With membership, you never know what we’ll offer you next.
Of course, you’ll also get updated about the new free content we are continuously posting to our site.
The answer is simple: being a member is the key to unlocking even more great free Lean content. While we offer vast quantities of great information on our site, the very best and most flexible is reserved for our registered users.
And, of course, better tools and information translate into faster improvement and a more productive workplace.
How Does Registration Work?
It’s easy. Simply sign using one of the forms you’ll find around our site. You will, in a very short time, receive an email with a link to activate your subscription. Once you do, you’ll receive an invitation code and instructions to register on this site.
You must click the link in your confirmation email to activate your membership. If you don’t receive this conformation message shortly after signing up, please check your SPAM folder to make sure it didn’t go there by mistake.
Why So Many Steps?
One of the advantages of being a small business is that you can be nimble and flexible. One of the disadvantages is that you are sometimes stuck with technology that doesn’t work exactly as you want, driving less than perfect processes. Our registration process falls into the latter situation.
We’ve got two main goals. One is to make sure we comply with CAN-SPAM laws. The other is to keep our site from getting bogged down by unscrupulous marketers who inundate websites with spammy registrations. So, to get registered for our site and to receive updates, please fill out the form above. Several of the boxes are optional, but will let us send you more relevant updates if you fill them out.
When you submit the form, you’ll get a message with a link to confirm your email address. Once you click that, you’ll receive an email with an invitation code and instructions on how to register. If you run into problems, though, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
