Brock Husby, M.S.E., Ph.D., P.E.

Brock is a process improvement Leader who has multi-industry experience in holistically integrating Lean across manufacturing, transactional, facility design, service, and other contexts to advance the field of Lean/TPS. 

This broad experience empowers organizations to truly revolutionize their value streams from product development to customer delivery.  This approach delivers exceptional results that drive positive culture change and high R.O.I. outcomes.  

He focuses on deeply understanding where an organization is currently at, developing a customized approach to match their needs, and "leading from the front" through facilitation, training, Gemba observation, and executive and front-line coaching.  

This approach is grounded in evidence-based Lean/TPS principles that go beyond the normal Lean projects and tool-based approaches to drive meaningful and sustained change.
