One of our staff has served as a Baldrige Quality Examiner for the State of Washington’s annual quality awards program. Another staff member received a factory of the year award for improvement efforts. We have coordinated numerous five-day Kaizen events that apply lean concepts to specific improvement areas. Kaizen is well suited for applying lean to the front office.
