LEAN EXECUTIVE BY DESIGN
Following our extensive R&D and subsequent pilot manufacturing facility we adopted lean manufacturing processes that refined the shape of our business enabling us to facilitate positive change by embracing a ‘Lean Teams’ principle with a small group of very talented executives.
To maintain sustainable fast paced innovation, we recognized that people with their hands on the product are most likely have the best ideas, so we encourage every idea to be heard. We do not waste time with long feedback loops up and down the chains of command, but rather processes for communication to ensure that decisions are being made with the most relevant, timely information resulting in continuous improvement.
We hire smart ambitious team members and give them the tools they need to be successful, and then, most importantly, get out of their way. Our purpose and goal are to build a sustainable, healthy company on a foundation of respect, learning, and empowering people to do their best work resulting in the most value for the customer and shareholders.
