We are a network of consultants dedicated to helping businesses and organizations develop a culture and discipline of process improvement beyond just making money (profits). We focus on practical, hands-on experience and learning, not weeks of training that provides no tangible benefits.

Our mission:

Helping businesses and organizations achieve “triple bottom line” performance using Lean and Six Sigma

      • Improvement Project Mentoring (DMAIC/PDCA/A3)

Check out case studies, training and tools specific to reducing your carbon footprint, water usage, solid waste (landfill), toxic/hazardous material and energy usage.

We are driven by a desire to make the world a better place. The UN Sustainable Development Goals provide a list of 17 major initiatives that need to be improved. Which one resonates with you? What can you do locally to support these goals?

Based in Portland (Oregon), we use the Multnomah County Climate Action Plan to drive our efforts to reduce carbon emissions within the region, specifically around energy usage, wasted food, and materials going to the landfill.

Have a specific question, or would like to discuss your situation? Schedule a phone consultation (first 10 mins FREE), or contact us through email.
