Quote – The lean project gave our business more structure on how we deal with problems, how we approach things and new ways of looking at things.  We also introduced a very good system to monitor our sales progress.  We feel we are now better equipped to move forward and grow the business.  We also found that visual management has helped in a big way and also got everybody involved and interested.
