Jim Hudson is the founder of the Lean Expert Academy and a previous partner in the Lean Leadership Institute with Jeff Liker (The Toyota Way), Paul Akers (2 Second Lean) and Norm Bodek (Productivity Press Founder). Jim is releasing his first book, Lean 2.0: How to Dominate Your Industry Using Lea(R)n Thinking in 2018.

Jim believes the days of suboptimal results of command & control management models will be replaced within this decade, and you are a driver in that transition. He believes that we are at the tipping point of a new era, an era where everything that has the name “management” attached to it, will be done with Lean thinking and Lean management.

After years of being deep in the trenches of making change happen, implementing Lean is not that hard to do. It’s actually quite easy if you follow the right steps, and Hudson's course shows you exactly how to achieve that outcome.

Jim's goal and mission are to produce as many excellent Lean thinking leaders as possible – to arm you with the ability to recreate what he and his team of consultants have been doing consistently for many years. 

Lean Consulting

Ever get that sinking feeling in your stomach that the C-Suite is not going to let your Lean implementation change them?

You can stop that today. Get that buy-in with a methodology that goes straight to the heart of Lean transformation, a step-by-step way to have Executives LEAD the Lean implementation, instead of being observer/bystanders.

Our coaching and consulting integrate elegant minimal shifting as the basis for company-wide Lean management implementation, at the organizational level and at an individual level. We believe that all success can be modeled and then, through excellent procedures, consistently reproduced.

Received training and then caught yourself wondering, "what next?" Then our coaching program may be just the right thing for you. You get the answer to that question in spades, while also boosting the net impact of your company’s efforts in all the right places.
