What You Can Expect

Getting to Lean will meet with the principles of your business, listen to your needs and perform an analysis of your problems. We’ll then come back to you with a suggested plan of attack. We’ll also give you a breakdown of our fees and time phase them to a list of deliverables or milestones in our plan. The initial consultation and proposal are free.

If you aren’t sure where your problems originate, we can perform a more detailed, for fee, analysis and let you know. Often we can tell you the magnitude of your problem(s) and what you’ll save by resolving it/them. If your problem obstructs your cash flow, we can tell you where the obstructions are and how much income you’ll generate by solving them.
