A strategy to envy

"We chose 14 Principles to introduce us to Lean and we've been delighted with the results. In their first two days with us they taught us the fundamentals of Lean Thinking and gathered valuable ideas from every person in the company. What a great use of time! Their teaching and consultancy has given us a set of tools for building an ever better business in a highly competitve market." Tony Tugulu - Founder and CEO, Power Internet Limited
