Lean Success Stories in the Dakotas!


    Dakota MEP : Success Stories

    Thanks to blog reader Justin for sending this my way. In fact, if you ever have Lean stories that would be good for the blog, please email me using the link in the left hand column of the blog.

    While there is some debate if the government should be in the Lean Consulting business, the Manufacturing Extension Partnerships seem to get good results in certain states, including Wisconsin.

    The first link above leads to a page with many Lean success stories from the Dakotas. I hope you'll find them inspiring in your own Lean efforts.

    1. We worked with DakotaMEP before our parent-company leaped into Lean. Great folks! I work with them today as part of a regional discussion forum open to companies implementing, dabbling, or even just considering Lean Initiatives.
