Lean Portland is a volunteer group based in Portland, Oregon that offers Lean and Six Sigma consulting to nonprofit organizations. We also host learning events, free workshops, interviews, happy hours and volunteer opportunities and mentoring for other practitioners.
This is a presentation on Lean Culture given by Maria Grzanka and Ernest Mayer from our Lean Portland team.
We were asked to present at the State of Oregon Department of Human Services Annual Lean Academy Conference, held on August 14, 2018. It was setup by the Office of Continuous Improvement. The presentation is based on material from the Edgar Schein Onion Model and our personal experiences.

This is the presentation we gave at the Association of Oregon Recyclers (AOR) Spring Reuse Forum in March 2018, explaining how we helped apply lean concepts to the reuse nonprofit industry, with Free Geek and The Rebuilding Center.
